Fern of some sort

Found on Sansend beach, just north of Whitby. Picked up on a hunch and has a fern frond in it. My first one. Also had a nice dact and some corals.

Will be splitting this / prepping it more when I get home, but can anyone tell species from the single frond in the photo?

Positive in the part that cracked away in the middle of the photo, negative at the top.

Found a what looks to me. A fossil fruit, but this has a bite out it, and you can clearly see the teeth marks from the upper and lower jaws.

Thie rock/fossil and or peterfied fruit has a bite out of it, human bite. And can clearly see the teeth marks from the upper and lower jaws.

Not sure if fossil or not

Was fossil hunting in Appalachian Virginia, USA, and found some brachiopod fossils but also found this and not sure what to think. Could just be oxidation in the rock but thought it’d be worth letting others see to get an opinion. The area in question is a result of the rock splitting when I was checking it out, so both pieces fit together to enclose the marking.
