Definitely could be with the ball and socket action.... not sure what other creature has the same back bone set up.

I would definitely call this crocodylian.

@willy @Carl and @TyBoy thank you that is what I was hoping for. It is very hard to find Hell Creek Material in the uk. So little purchases like this are very appreciated and will go nice next to my Crorodylian teeth. Cheers all

Likely from somewhere in the middle of the tail. You can see this from it being fairly slender while still having the lateral processes. Verts towards the front would be fatter, and the verts towards the tip of the tail would have no lateral processes.

Fantastic info thank you very much.

It's important to note that those are cervical vertebrae though. Not caudal.
