Unidentified Fossil

Recommended Posts

Hi, first time on the site. Walking along a track beside a newly ploughed field on a hilltop in a small town in the south of England and came across a fossilised bone and wondered if anyone out there had any ideas as to what kind of animal it may have belonged - appreciate any feedback on this.

Doesn't look like bone to me. More like severely weathered chert.

It's a piece of Upper Cretaceous flint, with a sponge in the middle. Flint nodules very often form bone-like shapes. 


And welcome to the forum!
