Peace river rat

Found in the Peace river today. At first I thought vert remnant, I think turtle. On each outer long side, there is a line in the middle that is very turtle like.

The background on the first two pics is nicely in focus, too bad the item isn't. :mellow:

 

Can you take some shots with the object in the sunlight? The shadowing really darkens any details.

I noticed that too. Let me try some more but I have not figured out how to focus close ups on this camera, hope these are better.

Don't have the background so far away. Put the item on a table or something with a plain surface. Holding the object no matter how still you think you are creates a slight movement and makes it harder for a camera to focus.

 

Given the thickness, it might be giant land tortoise.

( might be! )

I think it is a vertebra, maybe a dugongid vertebra.

 

Caldigger has offered useful advice.  Fingers offer some approximate scale in a photograph, but make sure to rest your hand on a stable surface like a table-top.

Dugong ribs are so common in that area, they get tossed right back in. Also found a horse tooth, a armadillo scute and a hearbreaker of a meg.

@Darktooth how are you? Wish you could of been here.
