I was walking on the beach in New Jersey (U.S.), at about 40 degrees longitude, and found this bone. It's not a fish. The long process in the front is interesting. It is likely a C2 vertebra. I looked on the web, but could not find anything aquatic that it might match. Certainly not a dolphin. It is 2 inches long (50 mm), and 2.5 inches high and wide (64 mm). I guess it need not be aquatic, and New York City (20 miles North of here) used to dump garbage in the ocean. It looks old. Can you help me identify it?
