Hi,

I bought this bone unprepared a few weeks ago and was wondering if anyone had any idea of what type of bone it is and what it came from?(it was identified as a T-Rex gastralia by the seller)

Without any indication of size or the location in which it was found I doubt you’ll get much luck. I’d be wary of any item for sale described as T Rex given the effect such ID has on the price

It was found in the lance formation in Wyoming, and is 12 1/2 inches, that is what it looks like after I prepped it.

More views please.

Gastral bones of the Trex Sue for you to compare against.

I’m not sure. It kind of looks like an upper gastralia. @Troodon @jpcwhat would your guesses be?

I'd need a good view of the left end to see if it might be a rex gastralia.

What I was hoping to see is a better view of the proximal end... In the photo troodon posted, notice how the inside ends of all the gastralia flatten out  They actually all fit together loosely along the belly.  If yours has a flattened out bit on the left end of your photo, then I would say yes.  If not, it still could be.  I don't know enough about IDing it based on cross section, for example.

Great job and at least it does look like like one.   What do you think and can you definitively say its Trex ? @jpc

I would be happy to have that T rex gastralia in my grubby little paws.  Yes, this end certainly looks like one.
