These are two crocodile vertebrae from the lower Jurassic (Posidonia Shale) from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden.

The bigger one is about 8 cm long.

 

Here is a picture of the unprepped fossil:

The prep work took about 10 hours. I am very pleased with this find because in general crocodile bones are much rarer than Ichthyosaur bones in Holzmaden.

 

Some more pictures:
