Fossil fish vertebra from the well of a gun-pit in a phosphate mine, Polk County, Florida. This vertebra exhibits hyperostosis, an overgrowth of bone, found mostly on the vertebrae and internal spines of some fish. The perforations alongside the centrum may represent what's left of the neural and haemal canals of the vertebra.
