Miocene Mystery Fossil - I Know I Have Seen This Identified Before - Help Please


Recommended Posts

I know this must be from a mammal and I think I have seen them before on the forum. So it should be an easy id for someone. Thanks1

Yep, I believe you have something called a "Tilly Bone", aka Hyperostotic bone. It is presumably from a fish and this swollen nature of the bone can apparently occur in various bones within the body. If you Google "Tilly Bone" you'll find more pics/info.
