Looks like a tooth/claw, but suspect it's a flint chip that just happens to be in the shape of a tooth/claw.

Firstly, welcome to the forum. This could be a small shard of water worn bone, but I would need to see a photo of the cross section (flat end) Please photograph all specimens in natural overcast light with a scale (a ruler is best) from all angles. Admin, please repost in a more appropriate forum.

Cheers for the suggestions. In my opinion it seems like bone because of the pitting and it’s sticky to the touch. It’s clearly not a sharks tooth and it doesn’t have the profile of a crocodile tooth so I’m at a little bit of a loss.

yeah my apologies, first time posting and I put it in the wrong place. I’ll try use a better camera. I’ll take a picture of the cross section when I’m home. It definitely has some characteristics of bone. It’s clearly not a sharks tooth in my opinion but to be honest I’m at a loss at to what it is.

Doesnt look like flint, it may well be a small piece of fossil bone,
