Found on southern NC beach. Don’t see any marrow. Slight curvature length-wise. Almost looks like fossilized celery :) notice though that the ridges coverage at some points, similar to finger print. Don’t think it’s an antler? There is a stripe of smooth face on the back as if there was a void (hollow?). Appreciate your thoughts!

looks to be a possible section of a Castorioides ohioensis incisor, better known as a Giant Beaver tooth

It does resemble a fossil beaver tooth, but a clear picture of the top of the tooth is needed.
