Hi guys,

We returned to Lee-on-Solent on Friday and found what we think is some reptile (rib) bone? Can someone help please?

Happy to add more pics if it helps.

Many thanks,

It certainly looks like bone to me (but I'm no 'bonehead)! The only thing I think it MIGHT be is turtle.

Hi

Agree with Colin, I would say turtle, photo 4 indicates that it would be the edge, Lee on Solunt is across from Isle of Wight, so that would be the most likely ID.
