Crocodile scute? And more

Recommended Posts

MrBones

Hello again. After I discovered a big fossilized bone on a hill close the Shipwerck beach in Ruwais, I decided to go searching in the same area for more fossils. I found all of these on relatively the same layer of the hill. I assume they are from the miocene. The first one looks like a crocodile scute. The second one looks like a shell from a tortoise. The third one I am not sure of. I would appreciate confirmation and a possible id. I know UAE fossils can be a bit tricky.20191017_121513.thumb.jpg.92bd8239efc34b02fd635f692c1169ca.jpg20191017_121601.thumb.jpg.d7f249f192cdcee17353a2ff5f14ed59.jpg

The item on the left is of a Crocodylomorph. The second is almost certainly of a turtle/tortoise.

For the second, I wil add for the turtle/tortoise, it corresponds to the first left costal plate.
