I found this whilst walking down the beach in Fuerteventura in Spain my guess is that it is claw off of something, any guesses?

Hello Shaun and welcome to the forum. I'm no expert on Spanish beach finds, but could it be a small (modern) crab claw?

I’m not sure but it is solid bone so I doubt it?

It  does look like a crab claw, both shape and texture...

The whole of the  Canarian archipeligo is igneous in nature so if it is a fossil then its come a long long way.

Lanzarote is one of the most interesting places we have ever been.

Here is a couple crab claws from red edible crabs they look very similar to what you have. Still something interesting to keep though. Click image for larger version - Name: 20190304_172936.jpg, Views: 15, Size: 196.92 KB

This may be a spine from a spider crab I have found some previously fossil hunting.
