Dinosaur bone ID needed

Recommended Posts

Hey guys.

This is an interesting dinosaur bone, I have no clue what it could be.

It’s 25cm and from Morocco.

Anyone have an idea? Thanks for the input! :) 

Regards

Agree sacrum but it does not have to be dinosaurian

Are there any good bone references for Moroccan Dino's, or is everything species specific.

Very little is known or published on bones of the Kem Kem

Definitely a partial sacrum.

 

Photos from the front and back might help with an ID. It won't be conclusive, but generally Dinosaurs tend to have taller or rounder vertebra centra. While crocs generally have more round or wider centra.

And though this piece seems incomplete, the number of fused vertebrae in a sacrum can also help with an ID. You appear to have 3 and a half vertebrae that are fused here.

Thank you. What does 3 and a halve verts mean? Is It IDable as anything?

Also, is it just me or does the shape seem a bit like spino verts?

Thanks for the help

Some Spinosaurid.

 

Baryonyx sacrum or possibly anterior caudal vertebra.

Spinosaurus aegyptiacus holotype. It includes a partial sacrum.

Mmh. Yeah. It does resemble spinosaurid a little. Interesting piece...

Maybe others will be able to confirm or not.

Thanks
