Hello, Everyone.

This is another sample from Runswick Bay on Yorkshires Jurassic Coast.

I'm hoping that someone will tell me that is a paddle bone from a marine reptile.

All replies gratefully recieved.

Could be a bone, but I’d dont see any bone structure on these pictures. If you see this, then it is probably a bone. As for the paddle part, I’ll wait for a local to tell you about that.

I does look like a paddle bone, right shape. It is a little thick in ratio to the length/width for an ichthyosaur, well mine examples tho. I’d really need to handle it to be sure. I’m 65/35 in your favour :) 


Why not not take it to Byron Blessed at the Whitby fossil shop, he’ll know. Nice guy.

Thanks John,

I'm down in Hertfordshire (rubbish for fossil hunting) but may be able to catch up with Byron at one of the Oxford fossil fairs.

You could send it to me and I’ll have a look. You’d need to cover postage both ways tho. :)
