    1 is definitely a multicusped tooth, and will either be shark or fish

    Number 2 is almost flat, and is domed. You can see the concaved side in the picture... I don't think it is a vertebra

    Yes, after looking again the texture definitely isn't bone, it looks more like the cross section through a shell or a concretion
