Seller identifies this as the proximal end of a pteranodon radius. I do know there's lots of other things this could be, so I thought I would post it here before pursuing a purchase. To my eyes it has the right shape. It's only a tiny piece, 2.5 inches, but an opportunity to own a piece of one of the most iconic pterosaurs is one I won't pass up.
Before anything, Hi everybody Im new here. Well, I just found this "radius" like fossil in a load of pumice sand for construction. I dont know exactly from where it comes, but all around here is Rancholabrean pumice. At first sight it looked like a rib, but now I think is a radius (or maybe an ulna). Unfortunately both tips are missing. I know have the complete bone is necesary for a more specific determination, but I wonder if Order or Family level determination is possible. I had compared with some pictures and the closer things I have now are some medium size feline, a "gracil" artiodactyl or even a human?! Can somebody help me with this please?
Dear Guys, I recently found some bones that are difficult to me to identify- possible mammoth rib proximal end, rhino zugoma and unidentified radius bone in Late Pleistocene sand layers of Varena Town, South Lithuania (it is Eastern Europe). The width of mammoth rib proximal end is 6,2 cm in the articular part, the bone layer in the cross section is massive. The length of possible rhino zygomatic bone is 5,6 cm and it has specific texture in the skull surface near eye. It is also massive and I see that thickness of bone is about 1,5 cm. The partial radius is 10,2 cm length and 3 cm width in the lower articular part. Any idea what this should be? Best Regards Domas
Dear Guys, I have found very interesting and big radius bone which should belong to large ungulate. It is bigger than simple cow, I think. Talking about bisons in my area (Lithuania, Eastern Europe) the largest was Bison priscus. The age of bone is 10-13 thousand years judging by in situ sand rocks in my town. The size of bone is 18 cm in length and it is much wider in the articular part. Any idea what is this? Best Regards Domas
