hi all, I got these as part of a collection. The ID card simply said "bird bone" from the Rancho LaBrea Fm, McKittrick. Honestly, birds are not my forte, but I'm trying, given all the bird material that I have collected from Lee Creek. But I digress... I could use some help with the ID of 4 bones. The two here are long limb bones, approximately 3.5in to 4in in length. As for an ID, that's all I can guess. Help! thanks!
I found 3 pieces of this black stuff along the James River in VA (Yorktown formation) It’s porous and lighter feeling than bones I’ve found in that area. It also smells like tar. Does anyone know what it could be? These pieces are 2 inches, but I have another that is a bit longer. The white bits are sand.
Okay folks. This one, I have no clue. The information that was given to me was nominal. That being Western United States, purchased at an Estates sale. I, by all means, am not looking for an exact identification. I'm trying to figure out 1)why is it so dark?/ 2)Dino. versus post dino. mammal? 3)What part of the creature? I'm guessing distal extremity. Thanks!
