Just wondering if there is enough of this bone to make it identifiable? I assume its the proximal section of a rib, but just checking if it could be part of a fibula or tibia? From the weald clay of sussex UK. Barremian . Thanks in advance. Henry
Firstly, my apologies if I am posting this in the wrong section of the website. I had a lovely morning searching down at Cooden Beach, Sussex uk. Very cold, very early start, setting off in the dark at 6am to get there for sunrise. After 3 hours of fruitless searching, and ready to give up, I came across this hybodus shark skull, showing the first few vertebrae. Cartilage doesn’t fossilise too well here, so looks a bit messy. As pleased as I am with it, I can’t help thinking the remaining section of the nodule was hiding nearby, but I just couldn’t find it. I’ll head back over there in a few weeks and look for the rest of it! If anyone finds it before me please get in contact and I’ll make an offer! thanks Henry
