I found this tiny, slender bone at a Hell Creek microsite during my trip to the Dakotas in 2019 with PaleoProspectors. I'm not sure what it came from, but I'm hoping it's theropod, avian or otherwise. It's missing a section of the outer layer of bone and I believe the interior is hollow & filled in with the ironstone common in the formation. The dimensions are 1.7 cm in length and about 3 mm in width. I would appreciate any feedback you may have.

In situ shot from the site:

The closeup shots did not come out exactly how I wanted them lighting and detail wise. If you would like me to retake them or get different angles I'll happily do so.

Thanks, that makes more sense as it did not have the clear indentations on the sides of what would have been the end of the toe & not articulating surface for other digits.

Cool find! I cannot imagine what it feels like to find even a small piece of dinosaur.

It's a great feeling for sure! I would highly recommend PaleoProspectors if you're interested in hunting dinosaur or white river fossils.
