Hello, I found these pieces a few weeks ago at Saltwick Bay in Yorkshire. The first one is obviously bone and I assume its ichthyosaur, but bone isn't really my forte so I hope that someone else may be able to confirm this or provide an ID. It also has a kind of stone cap on the flat end, anyone got ideas on how to remove that?

 

The second piece I'm not too sure about. The shape is suggestive to me and there are bits that seem somewhat bony in texture, but as I said, I'm not sure. 

 

Thanks :)

The first bone doesn't seem to have enough identifying features, so unless Ichthyosaurs are the only large vertebrates in that locality, I don't know if you can assign it. Someone else more familiar with the area will be able to say for sure. For the "stony cap," I think that's just part of the contact surface of a joint. I'm not seeing any bone in the second item.
