Please help.

Found this bone and have a few ? ? ?s.

1. In your opinion is it fossilized? (I'm clueless)

2. What sort of bone is it?

3. What animal could it have come from?

It is 10 inches long Center is 6 & 1/4 inches Round Ends ~ 1 is 12 inches the other is 11 inches

Please don't say its a cow bone, my family keeps making fun of me because I kept it.

But it is what it is, so just give it to me..... I can handle the truth. :blush:

Thank You

Jenn, they do not look like fossils but thats how most of us started out by picking up bones. You can take a match and heat one of the ends and if it smells like hair burning then it's not a fossil. Cool finds though. :cool: :cool:

Welcome to the forum, Jenn.

I think the earlier IDs are probably correct. It appears to be a cow humerus. The match test will tell you if it is mineralized. Modern bones are useful in a comparative collection when you start finding bison or musk-ox bones.
