Hey everyone, I just purchased this Iguanodon Bone and I was wondering if the ID was correct or even if it is dinosaur bone. Apparently it was found in the Wealden Clay in the Isle of Wight, UK. The front side has been polished, unlike the back side. Thanks!
Hi, I just saw this vertebra online and decided to buy it, as I have wanted an Isle of Wight fossil for a very long time now. The vertebra was listed as an Iguanodon tail vertebra and it was found in The Wealden Clays, Wessex Formation, The Wealden Group, Chilton Chine, Isle of Wight, UK (130 million years old, Cretaceous) Overall Size = 5.1 cm (2 inches) long by 5.1 cm (2 inches) wide by 8.2 cm (3.25 inches) high. I know there are a few very knowledgeable people on this forum when it comes to ID'ing dinosaur bones, so my question is: is the ID correct on this bone? Is it truly Iguanodontid (Mantellisaurus or Iguanodon) or is it from another of the many dinosaurs that can be found on the Isle of Wight? Or should I just label it as Dinosaur vertebra? Thank you in advance!
