Hi Napoleon. I do not know what that is. I just want to say I am glad you are still on the forum.

It does look like it could be one, but it needs to be better exposed to be sure.

In order to tell what the age is We need to have an accurate location, nearby town or district.

What age can be a problem. The specimen comes from a pile of gravel from the construction. It seems to be Jurassic or Triassic. I found it in Krakow.

Nice find.

Did the pile come from digging on site or as something brought in for fill?

Rather to build a road? Can this be a fish or a reptile?

I'm no expert, but I do remember hearing somewhere of reptile bones in this area. A little prep (clearing away the rock from the bone) may be necessary for a better ID. Also glad you stayed!

Without seeing more of it all I can say is it does not look like fish.

I am not sure it is a vertebra either.

This is a nothosaur like bone (humerus I presume) that has a similar beginning to yours (from Poland)

Looks more like enamel, than bone, to me.  :headscratch:

Probably I'm wrong, but is there any chance to be a brachiopod?

Looks like a pretty close match. The surface texture even looks right.

When pulling it is scattered but it looks like a bone not brachipod. See you.

Hi Napoleon N..

I am also glad you stayed.  I think this might be some sort of tooth.  Fish?  Whatever it is... Nice find.

This does not look like brachiopod to me but I don't know what it is. You find a lot of interesting things!
