This object washed ashore in SC near Myrtle Beach. Can you help me identify it, I was thinking an whale tooth, but there are sea lions further north and it could have traveled. What do you think.

Hi Karon,

it would be useful to see this from the other side. It looks like it could be a section of horn core, or a piece of turtle bone from the edge of the carapace or plastron.
