Chris's finds

Found these on a river bottom after major flooding eroded away the banks. Could use some help identifying. I have several ribs and what appear to be leg bones as well.

Fossil Bone?
by: Doug

This looks like it could be some fossilized bone possibly a vertebrea. If so it could be any number of animals.

Get a stratigraphy map of the area in which you found this fossil. If you can pinpoint the place you found the fossil the map will tell you the age of the rocks found on the surface.

With that info you can find out if that area was covered with water or dry land. You can also find out what animals were common at that time. This can help you narrow down the search.
