found somewhere in the uk, exact place is unknown.


has a clear ball as in ball and socket joint, but this might just be how the rock broke away from a different rock.

cannot attach photos, I can send them by email.

Hello, I have looked at your photos, tweaked them and studied them, but I'm afraid I can't see any evidence that this is bone or any type of fossil. What it might be is the internal cast of a burrow of a crustacean, you could call it a trace (Ichnofossil) if you really wanted to!

Can you see how it looks like a bone, with the (ball and socket) socket indent.

Fossil dinosaur bone shows an unmistakeable honeycombe pattern internal structure, much like the inside of a crunchie bar. I'm just seeing a rock, but some close up images of the surface would help. The shape can be very misleading, lots of rocks can look like bones, internal structure is the giveaway, along with location.Do you have any inclination at all where it came from? Only certain locations and rock formations produce dinosaurs, location rules out or in the possibility of a specimen being dinosaurian.

Thankyou 

We think it could be fossil based entirly on the shape

My dad found it probably many years ago, but I try to find out where he got it from. 

Do these pictures show what you need in terms of structure. 

So every dinosaur bone has a honeycomb structure inside.

Internal structure of the bone is well preserved and unmistakable where I collect, however this has no doubt come from an area I am not familiar with. It still looks like rock though, I cant see any evidence to suggest this is bone. In fact in image no8 there appears to be sedimentary structure to the lower left part of the piece.

I have came across loads of sandstone etc that resembles bones and certain shapes, nature can be cruel, ha.
