Hello all, we went walking this morning and found this on the beach, we have no idea what it is from, my husband seems to think it may be a part of a seal or similar, I am leaning towards part of a skull, but, as I am no expert...I am probably completely wrong! any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.I can also say that although it may look like wood, it isn't!
I have once before seen a piece of bone which had the same colour, texture and structure as this. I found it on the beach at Maltreth on Anglesey in 1975 and it resides on top of my wardrobe. My piece is part of the cranium,(brain case) of an Auroch (an extinct 'cow'). Here is a link which I think gives an idea of the internal structure of a Auroch to compare with your specimen
and another - enlarge the third photo on the bottom row and compare the bone structure with yours
