Can anyone tell if this is a plesiosaur femur or humurus? Or if not, have any thoughts on what it could be? From what I can tell it seems to have a slightly shorter/heavier curved length, and a more symmetrical curve than most plesiosaur bones Ive seen. I think it looks VERY close, but the slight differences I'm seeing are consistent with almost every plesiosaur bone I'm seeing, which makes me think the slight difference is a tell that it's not. Also, I don't see the ridges on any plesiosaur bones, but I don't know if that's natural to the bone, or from damage from fossilization at some point, but it does look natural to me. Sadly I do not know where it's from(yet), and I don't know yet if it starts to flatten towards one side, which I believe is an absolutely necessary feature. Hopefully I can find out and add that info, but I'd imagine it could still at least potentially be debunked as a plesiosaur bone in the meantime.
