Strange bone pattern


Recommended Posts

I found this shard of bone on the York River  in the Yorktown formation, and the pattern on one side is curious. I’m wondering if anyone has seen this, or if it’s a diagnostic texture? Thanks for any help!

I think you have something us yanks call turtle carapace.

I might think so too, but if you look at the end shot, the bone structure is wrong for turtle... it seems this is the inside of the bone that has the texture...
