Possible Dinosaur Fossil


Recommended Posts

Hi. I found this item West of Ft. Worth, Texas along with many Ammonite pieces. It may be my imagination, but it resembles a tibia to me. I cleaned it up and that is all. What is your opinion, please.post-6324-0-46891900-1412183513_thumb.jpgpost-6324-0-85811900-1412183552_thumb.jpg

I am no expert, but I don't see any bone-like structure on this item.

Sorry, but, I think this is an oddly erroded chunk of limestone.

The fact that it was found in association with ammonite fragments indicates that where it was found was a marine area, and while not impossible for dinosaurs to "bloat and float", it is unlikely.

I agree with Tim. Definitely looks suggestive of bone but it is not.
