Jbadair posted a topic in Fossil IDI found this fossil on our ranch near Plush Oregon a few weeks ago. It is the 2nd complete bone fossil I have ever found. The first was allegedly a camel cannon bone. I would like to make a post on it later but this one really grabs my attention. The length is 1 3/8" (34.925 mm) and the larger width is 1/2" (12.7 mm) and the smaller width is 3/8" (9.525 mm). I found it in a small dry alkaline lakebed. I have found fragments from there for a long time. People just call them camel bones but there has never been anything identifiable. The last picture is of the fragments you usually fi
I found the below three bones in the same spot on my last visit to the Peace River. I have not had much luck trying to ID them. Maybe just because they are not preserved enough or whole enough to find a match. I am hoping someone might be able to make an ID based on the photos.

My kids and I found what I think is likely a fossilized joint bone. We search in Late Cretaceous green marl. The bone is from a small stream a few miles from the Rowan Fossil Park (Sewell, NJ). We've found many fossils in this stream but are just starting to ask for help identifying them. The circumference around the side is 10.5 cm and around the top and bottom is 9 cm, and the height 1.5 cm.
