Another bone puzzle

Thank you for the response to my 'What is this bone?' post a few weeks ago. The answer, kindly provided by Paulo Viscardi, Jake and Ben, was that it was the tarsometatarsus from a large wading bird. I have another conundrum for you, sent to me from Ohio. I can tell it's a vertebra, but I'm not sure of the species (humans are more my thing!). It certainly is beautiful!



  1. Looks like the occipital of a fish, although I have no idea of the species!

  2. Oh really? D'oh! That's great, thanks!
