North Sulphur River Trip - Jawbone & Mystery Bone


Recommended Posts

Made it out to the North Sulphur River yesterday and found a couple of interesting pieces of bone.  One was a small jawbone that may be mosasaur but may be small enough to be from some type of fish, not sure.  The other piece was one of the largest that I have found but is an odd shape and I am not sure if it may be from a mosasaur, most of the material from this area falls into that group?  Any thoughts would be appreciated.

The jaw fragment looks like Xiphactinus.

Cretaceous fish skull fragment and fish jaw section. Most likely Xiphacitnus.
