Vertebra from Big Brook


Recommended Posts

ound this vertebra yesterday at Big Brook. Concave on both sides, but one side is smaller than the other, giving it the shape of a truncated cone.

If you need other views or macros, please let me know.

looks like a shark vert to me.

I initially thought that, too, but it doesn’t have the two opening on the top and bottom for the hemal and neural arches. Maybe it’s just so worn down that they’re gone?

That's an awesome vert, really nice size for the area. It would be nice to see more pictures, a little less zoomed in and straight-on shots.

I can take more shots but be sure to check out the .mov file I attached. It gives a pretty good tumbling view of it.

I see the file now. It is definitely a Chondrichthyan vert. It could be a shark or sawfish vert, but I think the wear on the sides makes it unidentifiable.

Thank you so much for your time! I was about to post new photos, but I based on your answer, I don't think they'd provide any new information.
