Could this be a Megalosaurus caudal vertebra?
msantix posted a topic in Fossil IDHi, Was wondering if this is a caudal vertebra from Megalosaurus? it is from Oxfordshire, England which is consistent with where Megalosaurus remains have been found but i am not sure of what diagnostic features separate Megalosaurus fossils from other dinosaurs and if there are enough diagnostic features on the bone in question. It is 6.7cm in length (2.65 inch). Thanks.

My visit to the Natural History Museum, London
Jaimin013 posted a topic in A Trip to the MuseumOn Sunday I took a trip to the Natural History Museum in London. I queued up before it opened at 10am and even before then there was a long queue. I have not visited this museum since I was a child and spent an entire day there (10am to 4.30pm - a long time). I was surprised as it is a lot bigger than I remembered and there was so much to see. This place has the most wonderful things and is an incredible place to learn. The museum showcases a Baryonyx, Sophie the Stegosaurus (the world's most complete Stegosaurus) and more!
