The Amateur Paleontologist posted a topic in Questions & AnswersHey I just had a question regarding what counts as articulated and associated bones. Let's say I find the partial mandible of some crocodile. The left and right dentaries are connected as they would have been during the animal's lifetime. Would that mean that the bones are associated and articulated? Or would left and right dentaries be considered as one single bone? Sorry if this is a silly question...
I found these two cow sharks (notorhyncus primigenus, bluntnose seven Gill) yesterday, miocene, Brownies beach. They were on both on a previous tide line within four feet of each other. The colors and size a very similar, so is it possible or likely that the lower and the symphyseal are associated? As in, from the same animal?
