What is it?


...... The answer is - I don't know. This is one of those weird 'head scratchers' or GOKs (God only knows) that we get from time to time. Celeste is prepping it up right now. Its been sitting down in the lab for over two years and various volunteer preparators have had a go at it and quickly left it for easier more exciting projects. It comes from the upper Elliot Formation in a quarry that has produced more than one type of sauropodomorph as well as a protosuchian crocodile and some honkin' big theropod teeth. Any suggestions?

All I can guess is that it is a portion of a skull. The lower curved surface is dorsal margin of the infratemporal fenestra.

I think it is the ilium of Massospondylus. The lower curved area could be part of the acetabulum.
