Looks like that could be a tooth.
Best wishes from the Lake of Constance. Roger.

Hi Welshy,
 

What age is the rock and maybe a location would help with a ID

 

cheers

My 1st thought was tooth, but the 2nd pic makes me wonder if it's a claw. The base looks like a flexor tubercule. Have you got a shot from the side?
Finally found bone[biggrin]

Wasn't meant to add that a 2nd time can't seem able to delete it said it hadn't been allowed due to spamming last night. What would a claw be from as everything else I've found is of a marine nature? :) Edited by Welshy 2014-07-24 11:49:30

Well I'm glad that the general thoughts are it is a tooth or claw. I was half expecting it not to be a fossil at all bit of flint trapped in the rock or something along those lines. Thank you all for your comments :)

Looking at your new photos, I'd definitely go for claw. I've no idea what its owner would be - might be contacting museums and seeing what they think.

In this picture it looks more like something partially in-filled by chert - it could still be one of the more complicated looking teeth or perhaps a dermal denticle. It's always good to find some weird ones :)

That's an interesting find Welshy.

I don't know what it is , but to me from some angles it looks a bit like an ammonite 'spine'.

It would be great if it was a tooth or claw though!


regards.

I've asked Jeff Liston to take a look, knowing he's worked on dinosaurs. I've quoted his reply below - 
One or two look like a tooth, but I agree that most of the images would seem to look more like a herbivore's claw.  What age?  That might help constrain the identity better....
