Ozan bone/skull piece

Recommended Posts

I have had this fossil from the Ozan formation (upper cretaceous) found in Mesquite, Texas for a while. It has always just been an unidentified bone piece to me, but a fossil buddy said that I should show it around. He felt that it had some features similar to a skull piece. Note the symmetrical holes/indentions noted by the arrows. Any ideas as to what it could be? The scale marks are 1mm, so it is approximately 0.5" by 0.75". Thanks

Have been preping this a little more and have discovered that the holes noted at the arrows are actually two channels that pass through the fossil.

am torn between turtle vert and a broken off and work neural arch of something else. These are guesses to provide fodder for those that actually know.
