Just got these two back from prep.
The first is a 5 1/2” hildi
The second is a bone block, Ichthyosaur I think judging by the vert.
Is there anyway of knowing what part of the beast the big bone came from and also how big he would of been.
Thanks for looking

I may be wrong, but I don’t think croc because the 3rd bone block picture looks like paddle digits to me

Looks like a big Coracoid from a big Ichthyosaur, probs Temnodontosaurus, with a vert and various paddle bones, think we have a piece of the same beast tbh... Nice !

If it were MM you wouldnt get them back for about ten years. I gave up and took my rocks back unprepped after 18 months of broken promises.
