Pterosaur bone

belemniten

This is a kinda funny combination out of a fish bone and a very rare pterosaur bone. The fish bone is the bigger one (5 cm long) and is lying on the top of the pterosaur bone. The piece comes from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Lower Jurassic).

As these are marine deposits you can imagine how rare the pterosaur bone is :)

 

Some very bad detailed pictures: (sorry for the bad quality but my camera is not good enough)

Thanks again for the nice comment :)

Did you see this  album?

http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/gallery/album/2825-pterosaur-dorygnathus-teeth-bones-from-jurassic-lias-holzmadengermany/

It's from a friend of mine, who collects every weekend in Holzmaden. 

Maybe I would show a better preserved and larger pterosaur bone to a specialist but this one isn't an important find. There are many better pterosaur bones from the area of Holzmaden... my target is to find a beautiful pterosaur tooth!
