Three Larger Florida Mammal Beach Bones for ID

Recommended Posts

tbr

I know there are worn or broken but would like any information on them.  They are fairly large.  I think the two white ones might be from the same animal or age, while the black one is very dense and was possibly much bigger than the remaining piece, but I don't know.   They came from a beach near Fort Pierce Florida.  You can see the rule for scale.

Thanks for any thoughts.

Sadly, I think the only information we'll likely be able to give is that they are indeed "worn or broken". Hard to confirm that they are actually showing bone texture but it is probably easier to see when you have them in hand. Given the size they would have to be from one of the mega fauna (from whale to larger land animals like elephant, sloth, or possible bison). Without a distinctive feature they are the Florida equivalent of "chunk-o-saurus" bones that will defy any attempts at ID.

 

Cheers.
