The seller claims is a plesiosaurus vertebrae 20cm that has no extra pieces on or glues , i was wondering if somebody can say the opposite.

thanks in advance

Looks like it came from the Khouribga Phosphate Deposits of Morocco

 

Size and morphology looks right to me. Can't see any obvious restoration.

 

It's authentic but it could also be mosasaur. Will have to leave it to another expert who can tell the difference between the two

Real vertebrae.

 

 

For ID a photo of the underside will be needed. Plesiosaurs have two small foramen (holes) on the underside of their vertebrae.

It's still kinda hard to tell. Those photos really are too small and kinda overbright.

 

But the general shape looks like Plesiosaur.

Yup, looks like plesiosaurid. The last photo clearly shows those holes/foramen on the bottom.
