Need Id For This Fossil.

5 posts in this topic

My grandparents found this fossil around 5-7 years ago

In the isle of white (exact destination is unknown by me).

Do you know what it may be?

I can show a scale picture if needed.

Sorry - it doesn't look like a fossil to me. It looks like a water-worn rock fragment that preserved the interface of two different sediments, one of which has developed septarian cracks.

I'm quite disappointed now, thinking that it was something 'exciting' for all those years.

Thank you though.

Interesting specimen

I'm not postive what it might represent.

You only posted a couple hours ago ...

I'm sure others will weigh in with their opinions

and observations.

It does resemble a plesiosaur flipper (sort of). But I hugely doubt it is!
