Glen Afric New Zealand fossil

Recommended Posts

Paleonique

My family and I have gone on a trip for the holidays so when we recently decided to take a trip down to Glen Afric again, we quickly realized we were no longer used to the hill that leads down to the beach. Luckily it was worth it and as always we found a few fossils that I have yet to learn about. 

 

Fossil number 1

Fossil number 2

I think this one could be a whale bone. I'm just wondering what part it could be

Fossil number 3

As for the last fossil, I was wondering if this could be coprolite?

  1st one sure is interesting.   Whats inside I do not know but hopefully complete whatever it is.  I was there about 11 years ago and found concretions with the crab, Tumidocarcinus inside them.

Just for your reference, you have two #2 fossils.

Number two: definitely bones. Not sure, if from a whale.

Number one: concretion, maybe with some kind of fossil. Needs careful preparation to get an idea what it could be.

Others: ?

My mistake.  There should be 4 numbers. I believe the second two should be a three and the one after should be a four. Thank you for notifying me
