Pleistocene crocodile vertebra?

Recommended Posts

Ash

Heyas,

 

From the Pleistocene of Australia, this one.

 

Is it a croc vert?  I'll throw in a @tooth_claw as well, ha! Or is it a modern cow..? (Also a possibility, upon further research). Always a few melon scratchers..

Oh, and @Jesuslover340 as it is her find :)

 

Cheers.

Definitely a cervical vert of a medium sized mammal. Could be bovid. If so it's not that big. I'd say somewhere from the back of the neck.

Hopefully we can get a few more opinionsbefore it gets chucked in the garden, but I do believe LordTrilobite may be correct in his assessment of it being bovid (most LIKELY cow). Still holding hope for crocodile, though :P

Well it's not croc. I'm not sure about an exact ID. But I have no doubt that it's a cervical mammal vert.

It is too cool to consign to the garden. I would shellac is & keep it. But I am a collector by nature. 

"It," not "is." Darn it!
