Hello All

I am in Central Illinois. Got started about a year ago digging in various places because my 5 year old wanted to look for gold. Central Illinois has a definite lack of gold but it seems like everything that ever lived died here. Fossils are common as dirt around here. Mostly we find crinoids and other sea creatures but we have found a couple of vertebrate fossils that we are having trouble identifying.

Today he dug up in the first shovel an actual vertabra that appears to be in excellent condition. Stumbled on here looking for answers to what it may be. Will post a picture or 2 in the ID section later after digging through some of the older posts to see what questions have already been answered.
