Fossilized turtle shell?

Recommended Posts

A fossil my father found on the dunes of Venice, Florida. We thought it was fossilized turtle shell, but not 100% sure.

Yup. Agreed with the above comment on this being too thick for turtle and more likely tortoise (Hesperotestudo). Picture a tortoise the size of those found in Galapagos.

 

 

Cheers.
