Raptor vertebra?

Recommended Posts

Fossil'n'Roll

I just recently bought this on a certain auction site (that I've been spending too much time on lately). The seller said it is most likely a raptor caudal vertebra. It was a surface find from the Judith River Formation about 30 miles north of Glasgow, Montana. Is the seller's ID accurate?

I am unsure of the identity of the find; however, I beg you to please visit this site and post the item in question prior to purchasing the fossils. It will only benefit you in the future. Anyway, good luck with your future purchasing or collecting!

It's quite thin, but I guess this is just because of its caudal positioning. I don't see any problems, but maybe others will know better.

@Trevor Yeah, I probably should do that in the future. It was pretty cheap though so no worries. :)

This does not look like a vertebra to Me.

But there are no diagnostic features on it that could be used to say what it is.

It certainly could be, but it is very worn.  Hard to say for sure.
