I bought a collection of water worn IoW bone fragments to have a go at slicing and polishing and amongst them I found what looks like a humerus. Could this be a small dinosaur humerus, something like Ankylosaurus?

Thanks Rob, I was beginning to think it was wishful thinking.

Hi

This is a good link for Research gate showing all Ankylosaurus bones.

I know this was a couple of months ago and I am replying to old comments, but it won't be a ankylosaur humerus because ankylosaurs were not present on the island, the closest dinosaurs to ankylosaurs on the island were polocanthus and gastonia but they both have very distinct bone structures, this strikes me as iguanodon, sorry
