Scylla posted a topic in Fossil NewsIn Synapses vs Saurapsids, Synapsids get more diverse forelimbs. https://m.phys.org/news/2019-03-mammals-unique-arms-evolving-dinosaurs.html
Hi there, I'm new to fossil hunting and came across this today in the newly surfaced coast land mass at Kaikoura, New Zealand. It's quite large; at least a foot long. Move read about the fossils of ancient dolphins being found in the area and was wondering if there was any possibility of this being linked to those finds? any help in identifying it would be greatly appreciated!
My granddaughter is in 4-H Geology and has found these two items and no one has been able to ID either one. She found both items at a local sand pit. The first one was in one piece until she accidently dropped it. When it landed it broke open and the white areas were inside. One side feels kind of chalky and the other is feels pretty smooth but has ridges. Any help would be greatly appreciated as she is trying to get her exhibit box ready for the Fair. Thank you, Mari
