I'm new to this and would really appreciate any opinions on the identity of this. It looks like bone to me. Found at Aust April 2011.

Looks like a piece of rib to me, so at a guess I'd suggest plesiosaur (since I think they're the most common reptiles encountered at Aust). I could be wrong though LOL.

It sure looks like bone in general shape, Sal. When you look up close, does it have that classic honeycomb structure of bone...?

Can't see anything resembling honeycomb structure, perhaps its not then Unhappy, although the brown outer layer, in the shortest part of the curve (pic 1), really does resemble a bone texture?

It doesn't look like bone to me, maybe a trace fossil burrow ?

Hi sal,
welcome to the forum from a fellow Bristolian.

Intriguing piece, it doesn't look like the normal burrow casts from Aust but then again I can't see any thing from your pics that suggest it's bone either.
