Hi TFF friends, 

how are you?

 

I would like to have your opinion concerning the following fossil.

It's a bone I found a while ago in the Himenoura formation, Santonian (Kumamoto Japan) and I forgot until I decided to clean my drawers.

It has a quite distinctive shape and make me think to a sea turtle bone, a paddle or an ulna maybe.

What kind of bone do you think it is? Any ID?

 

I am not looking for the ID, I just would like to know what kind of bone it is.

Thank you Mike. Even a stab in the dark can put me in the right direction.
