During one of my hikes exploring the badlands in Central Alberta Canada (Scollard formation) near the Red Deer river I found this strange flat & thin piece of what appears to be fossilized bone. As you can see from the pictures it fans outward and it's quite thin, to me it almost looks similar to a aquatic flipper although I obviously am not sure at all what this could be. My instinct wants to say turtle piece possibly? Any help to ID this cool fossil would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you in advance!
