Tooth-like object in Aust Cliff material.

Hi, I've found a few things looking back at my Aust cliff material. This here somewhat resembles a tooth or claw in shape. I'd appreciate if anyone could tell me what it is? Found at Aust cliff, UK. It's 6mm long. 

 

Many thanks.:)

Hard to tell from photos but does it have a grouve following the curve

It seems the photo quality has decreased, I'll see what I can do about getting a better photo

Looks like bone and i had a very similar piece that turned out to be a rib but better pics are needed

Thanks, I'll get some pictures in daylight tomorrow

Sorry I had completely forgotten to upload the picture. I wasn't able to get any better quality pictures, sorry about the really late response.

Looks like possible bone to me too... Definitely not a tooth, as no surface ornamentation is visible (nor is any enamel), and the piece is entirely flat otherwise.

Thanks. So bone is the most likely.

You'll have to prep that out a bit more to know better.

I thought so, I saw something about prepping Aust material somewhere.
