Bone fragments

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I found these bone fragments all on one spot in Ruwais, Abu Dabi, UAE.

I think the third one from left to right is a vertebra of some sort, but I am not sure to whom it belongs. I think the age is late miocene, and it used to be a swampy savanna environment. I have found crocodile teeth, fish bones, turtle and tortoise shell fragments, and an antelope tooth at the same location.20200424_163854.thumb.jpg.05152dc8ee12e2b925f32a655c7ad8ca.jpg

I'm interested to see what the one is that looks split could be.

I'm not sure for the first but I propose a radius/ulna.

 

The second bone is a proximal epiphysis of an ulna.

 

The third is a vertebra i think.

I googled those and you seem to be spot on!
