Recommended Posts

old bones

My husband,my Mum and I just returned from Edisto Beach, S.C. where we spent every available minute scouring the beach for fossils. We found lots of goodies, and had the pleasure of meeting TFF member TheAshBee!

I am combining the photos of old bones and Ancient Bones finds in this trip report. Scale is mm.

We are not sure what this specimen is. Could it be a coprolite? Found by Ancient Bones.

Thank you Auspex. What size bird do you think that the bone is from? I was so pleased to find it!

Nice photos. Your ray tooth in post #7 is most likely Plinthicus stenodon. They occur in the Oligocene and Miocene.

I think the snake vertebra in post #5 might not be from a snake. If it is, there has been a lot of damage and parts are missing. Could it be from a bird?

This is a subjective guess, but it seems stout of shaft, relative to it's extrapolated length, so I envision the bird to have been a small but sturdy swimmer; something like a Puffin. Sadly, none of the diagnostic features remain.

Thank you Eric. I had a suspicion that's what it was. That is why I photographed the end view. ;) I was hoping that you would look at it and confirm.

Hmmm, I wonder if anyone can tell from what is left of it. It looked to be in good shape, but I see what you mean that parts may be missing...

Great pics as usual Julianna! That crab material under magnification looks beautiful.

And yes, i would say your mystery spiral is a worn coprolite.

Good stuff you guys!
