OK -

Octopus sucker? - Those COULD be teeth on the inner rim.

You're good... You're not exactly correct on the animal, but since you're so capable, can you guess more specifically?

They are calamari !! -

I mean "Squid" suckers. From a micrograph. These below are from a Giant Squid so the teeth are much larger with respect to the diameter of the sucker than they are on smaller squid.

So if it's not a marine organism, is it aquatic or terrestrial?

It looks like part of a tube worm, or the tail of a fish, or part of a reptile.

no to a tail.

And it is a safe conclusion that it is part of something - it connects to something at the top of the photo.
