Ramon posted a topic in Fossil IDHello, I found this fossil last spring break, in Coahuila, Mexico. It comes from the late Campanian (73-71 Myrs) Cerro del Pueblo formation. I found several fossils at the same location where I found this fossil. Some of the fossils I found include Cerithium snails, several species of Physidae freshwater snails, Inoceramus sp., petrified wood with teredolites, ammonite fragments, a caudal vertebra from a Hadrosaurid, and plenty of dinosaur bone fragments. The formation is a mess, it’s composed of layers that were deposited in marine, and terrestrial environments, as well as rivers and possibly swamps. Even though I’m very knowledgeable of the formation, and the fossils that have been found there I still have no idea as to what this specimen is. My best guess at the moment is that it’s some type of plant material maybe a fruit or a seed. There have been numerous plant fossils found at the formation, including fruits. I also think this could be embedded in a coprolite, with the rounded object being embedded in it. Let me know what you guys think about it.
Hello, this spring break I found this vertebra in late Campanian sediments from southern Coahuila, Mexico. It comes from the Late Campanian, Cerró del Pueblo Formation, around 73-71 million years. This was found along with marine and terrestrial fossils. It is about 1 cm long (3/8) of an inch, 1 cm in width, and 1.1 cm in height. I want to know what type of dinosaur this vertebra belonged to and whether it’s a caudal vertebra or not. My thoughts on this specimen at the moment, is that it’s probably a caudal (tail) vertebra from a small theropod dinosaur, something like a dromeosaur or a troodontid. I hope some dinosaur experts on this forum can give me more insight on this small vertebra.. Side view Other side Front view Bottom Top view
