Can Anyone Help Id This One?

Recommended Posts

I found this one while sifting a creek in Summerville, South Carolina. To me it appears to be some type of skull, possibly a nasal bone as I see the beginnings of eyesockets on the underside. I'm wondering if it's some type of bird or fish? Thanks!post-6666-0-30048600-1400780057_thumb.jpgpost-6666-0-43219200-1400788296_thumb.jpg

Can you get a top view please? It looks similar to a skull fragment. But clearer pics and more are necessary for an ID.

I've added the top view; I thought I loaded it before but apparently not! Thanks!

It does look like a partial skull. But it doesn't look "fishy" to me. It looks more mammal or avian. I'll reference my collection when i get home.

I couldn't find a match or anything similar, sorry. Hopefully someone else can recognize this, and get an ID for you.

looks like a fish skull element to me.

I agree possibly partial parasphenoid bone

I have attached an image of an example ( not saying that this is the species in the original post just a comparison ) but I may be wrong

best regards Chris :)

I bet you're right. I kept seeing a little skull, but now I see it is just a part. Seeing this picture also helped me understand the orientation. Thanks!post-6666-0-87451200-1400878717_thumb.jpgpost-6666-0-87451200-1400878717_thumb.jpg

All I can add is that it is not avian.
