South Carolina River Find

Recommended Posts

Hello Forum,

 

Found this river diving in South Carolina.

Not sure what to make of it, looks like solid bone, like a dugong rib, except that its very small, only 4 inches.

One end is broken, and solid, no marrow cavity.

The other end terminates in a point, and where the pointy end is chipped, it looks like normal spongy looking bone structure.

Any ideas what this may belong to?

Could be an Eocene sirenian rib.
