flint


i got only minor knowledge of bones, so i can't help to id it.

i find the spur interesting, and maybe it's the bone underneath an antler, but this is a total guess. the 2nd pic is the most in focus, and maybe, this view shows some cut marks, but it's hard to say from those photos. those bones look reasonably old, so if they are cut marks, it could make your find more interesting, than thought originaly.

This is an unidentified (as of yet) fossil from the Mahajunga region of NW Madagascar.
It looks like a calcareous bone, but I have no idea what it really is.
Any thoughts?P8230560.JPG P8230562.JPG

I have posted a couple more photos, but I'm not sure these will help.
A few looks but no comments as of yet!

what do you mean with calcareous?

I don't see any evidence, of calcium being involved with those bones, but anyway they look very Holocene to me.

As I said, Flint, I have no idea. I thought it looked like a heel spur of a prehistoric chicken.
It's only a single specimen - images are taken from different angles. 
Any idea of what kind of Holocene bone it is?

Thanks for your input.
