    Michele DeYoung has contributed a new specimen to myFOSSIL!

    • Looks like a well worn bone end; might want to search where it was found if possible for others(?). Does it stick to your tongue? But might have been under glaciers or water, or both?

    • Hi @michele-deyoung, an important part of ID is knowing the context of the fossil! If you could update this post with the location that would help! Sites like macrostrat.com or the Mancos app can help you determine the lithostrat based on its location! @smoran might be able to help, but this specimen might be too worn to have any identifying features!

    • @lisa-Craig it does stick to the tongue. Does that indicate bone?

    • Hi Michele! yes, if it sticks to your tongue it is usually bone.

    • Michelle, Mackenzie has a great idea about using those other apps. Since the fossils are unique to different layers of the Earth, a handy app might be able to tell you a match to that exact bone.
