Turtle Bone Id?


Recommended Posts

  • New Members

I was checking out the local beach the other day and found this large bone fragment. I also found a bunch of turtle shell fragments around the same area in the water, some indicating of a very large sea turtle at one time. As well as some ray barbs and teeth. Any idea if this might be a piece of turtle bone, or something else entirely? Any ideas?



Thanks, new to this and trying to learn as much as possible.

Usually with Florida material it's a jumbled mess of fossils. So something being associated in a river or on the beach would be rare.

Your find unfortunately doesn't have any defining characteristics to help ID it. It looks to be just a chunk-o-bone.
