Vertebra from Florida

Recommended Posts

I had to look at this one twice.  It seems to have a process sticking off the wrong side of the centrum at first glance.  The pedicles and neural arch are missing, and the spinal canal location is evident. It has a pronounced triangular shape. This leads me to think I am looking at 1/2 of an Axis vertebra, but the shape seems all wrong for that too.  What are we looking at here?

I'm still not shure, thinking 1/2 elephant atlas?? That process is just not in the correct location..:headscratch:

Could you post a couple more photos? Say, the opposite side of the first image? It's very strange, and probably not a vertebral centrum - atlas seems right to me but still weird.
