Partial Vert?

Recommended Posts

I believe the below specimen is a partial vertebra.  But if so, of what?  Or is it just too broken to ID?  Any input would be appreciated, thanks!

It doesn't strike me as the usual geometry of a vertebra. It's a bit too linear, if that makes any sense.

Thank you for your response Rockwood.  I agree with the overall more linear look.  I just don't have any other ideas what it might be.  Still hoping someone may recognize a possibility.

I have found similar.. never identified. If that is part of a vert, it s the process part.

Like this from Dugong...

I was thinking antler as a possibility too.  I am going to do some more research on that idea.
