After several attempts to identify a vertebrae I had found in the upper Glen Rose Formation in Hood Co. Texas Troodon had input that was helpful. His interpretation of the vert as being crockish had me digging deeper into attempting an ID. Although there is very little information of vertebrate finds in the Glen Rose material there is some. I found it in Wikipedia as possibly: Genus Pachycheilosuchus, a crocodylomorph. The description of the procoelous vertebrae has me bamfoozled. It has a description of the verts as cupped on the anterior and rounded as posterior. Clearly mine is cupped on both. That is where the similiarity ends. Hopefully over the next few trips to the site I will find more, I think after reading the available papers some of theother bone material may be related the vert not turtle as we first suspected. The croclike fossil is very small and was considered adult at ~ 2.0 Ft or 63.5 -80 cm. If interested reply or just follow because I will post more information (ON THIS LINK) as it becomes available.

This is a sea lion skull I was lucky enough to find last Friday (June 7th) at the Ernst Quarry's in Bakersfield. It is from the round mountain silt of middle Miocene age. I am wondering what the species is, maybe it could be Alledesus or Neotherium but don't know how to tell. Any ideas are appreciated, thanks!
