Hiya! 

 

Wentout today to look out for fossils for the first time. Stumbled upon what seems to look like some type of vertebra on a river bank? Not entirely sure if it's a fossil at all, since there were lots of deer bone fragments in the vicinity too. Looks to be a little older though?

I'd say it's a muddy modern bone. 

Next time, pick it up. If it feels heavier than bone, it might be fossilized. If it's just a bone, it won't hurt you, bones hold onto about as many germs as rocks.
