Red Crag Vertebra???

Recommended Posts

My friend found this in the Red Crag at Bawdsey, Suffolk, unfortunately it fell apart upon retrieval. Is it a large fish Vertebra?

Also found what looks like a small partial Meg down on the shingle, as well as a few other smaller teeth. I have also included a tooth that i found that is partially enclosed in rock, i have never found another like this. Any ideas on how it came to be?

I took the liberty of brightening your last picture.

First is a fragment of a shark tooth, not sure of the meg ID.

Next is a fish vert.

The last item looks like a scale weight. Is it magnetic?

You’re right on the vertebra. The partial tooth is Cosmopolitodus hastalis, and the other object is also a tooth, but with the root encased in a phosphatic nodule. They turn up quite often preserved like that in the Crag. Nice finds all round.
