Those look like Tilly Bones to me (hyperostotic vertebrae). Others may chime in to confirm (or correct) me. ;)

 

A search online for "tilly bones" will bring up some interesting content to learn about these odd inflated bones.

 

 

Cheers.

You don't have to "google" tilly bone.  Search this forum for good information.

Thanks everyone...  I searched here and online for Tilly Bone... The two I have is flat on the back (doesn't look like inflated)... And is almost perfectly symmetrical down the middle....  Could it be something else???  And if it's Tilly Bone... Any guess from what???

 

Thank u all for ur time again...  =)

Thanks....  Just saw in detail...  It could be a Vertebral Hyperostosis...  But the ones I found is at least twice the size shown on page 45.

That's the only one that looks like mine...  =)

Various species seem to have this hyperostosis and so the size of the verts could vary with species.

 

 

Cheers.
