Vetrebrae which appears to have teeth on its distal aspect

My daughter found this bone on the beaches of Bagamoyo on the Indian ocean coast of Tanzania a couple of years ago.  It appears to be a vertebrae but strangely it has multiple rows of teeth on the distal aspect.SAM_3654.JPGSAM_3655.JPGSAM_3656.JPG  Could anyone help me with its identification please.  I am aware  sharks from the carboniferous period had teeth on other parts of their body such as their heads and dorsal fins, but this is very strange.


Many thanks
