I found this chunk of bone in the North Saskatchewan River near Edmonton, Alberta. I know it is only a small fragment but I was wondering if anyone might know what bone this piece came from. I don't know much about the anatomy of animals but to me it looks like possibly the mandibular Rami, or possibly scapula?
The Amateur Paleontologist posted a topic in Questions & AnswersHey I just had a question regarding what counts as articulated and associated bones. Let's say I find the partial mandible of some crocodile. The left and right dentaries are connected as they would have been during the animal's lifetime. Would that mean that the bones are associated and articulated? Or would left and right dentaries be considered as one single bone? Sorry if this is a silly question...
