Sween
Had this piece in my collection for a long time and never really decided if its bone or wood. It was found at Lavernock, South Wales which makes it early Jurassic. Both bone and pieces of wood can be found at this location. Usually good at telling them apart but not 100% sure with this one. Is there any definate way of telling? Any help appreciated.

Hi

If I picked that up I would think the outside shell is wood, zooming in on the outside showing a cross section could suggest a wood struction, my first thought on seeing the exterior again wood.
