I was wondering if someone could help me identify this fossil found over the weekend. It was found in South Bend Indiana. Because it was found in Northern Indiana, the fossil isn't from around here and was probably deposited by a glacier from somewhere up north. It is approximately 12 cm at its longest point and about 4 cm wide. Thank you for your help!
Hi, I am new to the forum and was wondering if someone could help me identify this bone I found and if it is, in fact, a fossil. I found this in South Bend Indiana in an area where drainage water runs through to a pond. I usually hunt this area for "fossilized coral", but today I found this bone literally just lying on the ground. I have found bones in this area before, but this one is different. It is rock hard and heavy. I was thinking at first it might be waterlogged but the bone isn't brittle at all and looking at the top of the bone, it appears to be rock (as evidenced by the picture). The bone is 9 1/2 inches (24 cm), very smooth, and non-porous except for the first 2 inches (5cm) of the bone which feels rougher but doesn't appear to be porous. I hope I have given enough information and the picts are acceptable. If not, I will give more info and take more picts as needed. Thank you.
