 Found this skull bone piece in a sand dune by the beach, I think it might be some sort of fish or hopefully a reptile. Found in southern Africa.20190114_204402.thumb.jpg.97d8ec67abe10472d528f83afbd02f64.jpg

Hey @MrBones,

When You take pictures for an identification it would help if You did a few of things.

Place the object on a solid colored background that contrasts with the fossil (not the same color).

Take the pictures from straight on from all sides (think cube).

Show the whole piece with a scale (ruler preferred).

Show close up of any details You think may help to determine an ID.

 

Thanks,

Tony
