Hi all, wondering if anyone can help identify these ‘bones’ found on Llantwit Major beach in South Wales. I’m told ichthyosaurs finds are common there but can’t see this obviously fits?

Don't think they're bones, more like elongated weathered bits of rock (limestone?). Bone would be darker and exhibit more structure at broken surfaces.

Is that Skirrid from Blorenge in your ID pic?

Hi Tess,
I'm pretty certain these aren't fossils. As Pete says they look like pieces of weathered limestone.

Sorry!
