Bone pieces from the Banjaard

Recommended Posts

Max-fossils

Hi everyone, 

Here are 3 bone pieces I found last month on the Banjaard beach in the Netherlands. Not sure what any of these are. 

Their age is most likely Pleistocene, but it could also be Pliocene. 

Both terrestrial and marine are possible. 

Let me know if any of these remind you of anything!

Thanks in advance,

Max

If I were a betting man, I would say bird cervical vertebra and humerus, and I don't know on the last one.

Let's hope you'll never have to do that :P 

Thanks for the help!

Thanks! I don't know about bird for the last one... that'd have to be a really big bird! The ruler is in centimetres

I wonder whether #3 might be a mammal cranial fragment? All those sinuses...

That was my first thought too. Maybe @Harry Pristis can recognize it?

#1 is an avian cervical vertebra, and #2 is an avian humerus. #3 rings no bells for me.

What there is of the humerus is very like that of a Loon (family Gaviidae), but not quite.

Okay, thanks a lot!
