Hi
Ive just got back from a great fossil collecting trip in Yorkshire.
While at port Mulgrave I found the below, It looks to be bone to me but I would love to find out if I’m correct and what it may have come from?

thankyou  B2B62306-1DD3-4468-A7AD-6BC130A62060.jpeg  0DA97EEE-2E77-4212-8F4B-25B26A0BA2DE.jpeg  9A9397A2-27B5-4607-AB97-28855F0AAD22.jpeg  1F564DB2-0004-4628-A783-2A0349DF0D06.jpeg  182B92E2-41C8-4154-8376-526B6A2BFEC3.jpeg

Hello, this may well be the tail fin of a sturgeon; Gyrosteus mirabilis, in certain layers a common fossil, but seldom a nice as this one; good find!

greets, Bert
the search is as valuable as the finds...

Hi Bert, thankyou for the information, now to research into that species as much as I can.

I think it is perhaps a part of a paddle bone from a pleisiosaur

That would be amazing, do you think I could get a positive identification if I took it to a museum or something? Or are some of these bone chunks just too ambiguous

Make sure you take to one with a geologist
