Can you identify what animal this (1
) bone is from? It was found washed up on a beach in Rhode Island.

I'm assuming it's a mammal backbone of some kind. (It could also be deer--there are some that live on the beach.) I'm interested because I pick up a lot of stuff on the beach to put into a little nature center there and I also want to know if it's legal for me to have it if it does turn out to be something interesting enough to put in the center.
Bonus question: what would be the best way to sanitize it without having it fall apart?
