Hi there,

I found this bone on Boldnor beach on the Isle of Wight. Any ideas what it could be from? I understand that the area produces finds from the oligocene era.

Many thanks,

Steve.

Hi

Very strange and interesting. Never seen stuff like this before. Suggest sending photos to Dinosaur Isle museum for ID saying exactly where you found it.

Hi there,

I've done just that. Chap there thinks it may be some kind of mineralisation, but is not 100% and has recommended a 
trip over to the museum. That's all the excuse I need really [wink]

Thanks,

Steve.
