Hi everyone, I found this bone on the beach (mediterranean sea), it's really heavy, really like a stone and not like a bone. I suppose it could be a fossil vertebra of a big animal, it's similar to some cranial vertebrae (atlas) of cetaceans. What do you think could be? In the area of finding there are marine formations from pliocene to pleistocene. Dimensions: 11x5x3 cm.
Tried a different beach on the Rapp. Not many shell fragments, lots of gravel and small rusted metal pieces. Found three tiger shark teeth, but no others (odd, don't usually find those). Looking for an ID on the 3" bone in the photos below. When in doubt I guess turtle, but my nephew who was really into fossil hunting 30 years ago, guesses dolphin neck or tail?
