Two bones from the Isle of Wight in England

Recommended Posts

Terra
Request ID for two bone fragments from the Isle of Wight in England.
The first one was found in Sandown on the beach near the rocks at Yaverland in the gray sandstone sediments - the Vectis formation from the Wealden Group. From this beach are found crocodile or pterosaur bones. The bone is small and has no endings that could say something more / identify, but maybe something can be said?
The second bone is a small fragment of the top layer of some bone. She was found in the same place as above on the beach. I wonder if this is the contemporary bone of an animal?
What do you think?

Just what is it?

I think "bone fragment" is as close as an ID will get.

Bone pieces like this are often referred to as  "chunkasaurus"

Any chance the first one could be a pelvic bone?

Not saying this is definitive, but this is a turtle pelvis up above for example

I personally would put those into the "random bone" container.
