I took the liberty of lightening and sharpening your photo a little bit. :)post-8801-0-78772800-1395017046.jpg

Still can't see it that well? Can you get a better picture? :)

I take pictures with my phone. I usually crop out the excess, and then brighten or sharpen the picture a little bit if necessary. If I don't crop the file is usually to large to upload. Not sure if that helps you or not... :)

Step 1 -- Lots of light,

Step 2 FILL the viewfinder with the fossil -- no extra space, You can do this when you take the photo or when you crop it.

Step 3 I usually use Windows picture viewer to compress the photo from 3-5 mb down to 100-200 kb

Examples:

Note in the 1st photo I lay the fossil ON the ruler. SS

It looks like a Stingray crush plate to me but longer then im use to. But the back looks funny.....im still up in the air about this (especially after that crab dermal mystery! Lol)

It looks like part of a dolphin mandible. The indentations on either side are where the teeth rested. This section would be the center section of the jaw, between the two teeth rows. A picture of the other side would help.

I agree with Al- long beaked dolphin jaw.

Very common in the Peace.
