3 Predator Boring Holes in Brachiopod Fossil

This image shows an Orthotetes keokuk brachiopod fossil with some type of boring holes. Maybe they were made by some sort of predator?

It was found in the Edwardsville Formation of Floyd County, Indiana, USA. The fossil dates to the lower Carboniferous (Mississippian) Period.

Thanks Kenny for the picture.
