Hi, I found this small fossilized bone, about 6 months ago in southern Galveston Island. I haven’t been able to ID what animal it came from. The geology of the area is from the Late Pleistocene (100,000-11000 years ago) Beaumont formation. I have found fossilized turtle shell fragments, and fossilized crab claws in the same location. It measures just about 1 cm in length and width. Any idea as to what is is? :headscratch:

I cropped and lightened as much as I could. Some better pics with some softer lighting would probably be better than what ever I could whip up with software.

Ok, I’ll take better pics tomorrow. This fossil is one of the strangest I have
