Sauropod bone possibly? from Agadez area, Niger

Recommended Posts

Hi, All.

 

Here's another "large" fossil I've acquired.  Same origin as the others - Agadez area of the Sahara desert in Niger.  Based on the feedback I got on an earlier submission, I'm wondering if this could be from a sauropod and, if so, what part of the skeleton?  As you can see, there's a lot of mud on it that I haven't tried to remove yet, as I am a complete neophyte and don't know the proper way to do so.  I welcome any and all guidance on that too.

 

Thanks so much for all your replies!

No idea on this one,  if the matrix "mud" is removed might have more clues

I agree that removing some more of the matrix might reveal some much needed clarity. But from just these photos it does seem like there are some thin bone walls and some possible pneumatic cavities that might indicate Sauropod. Part of a vertebra perhaps?

Thank you!  Any suggestions on the best way to do that without messing it up?
