    Question What animal's bone is this?

    I found this bone today, i am not too sure what part of the body it might of been, i found it in England, Hunstanton on the beach sand. As seen in the pictures it is only 4-5 cm wide. As it was on the beach i think it might be a fish or a bird but please tell me what you think it could be.Another question- why is it black?

    Welcome to TNET!

    What you have there is a vertebra, and the dark coloration is caused by being subjected to moisture while being covered with soil.

    Is there a way of telling what kind of animal's vertebrae this is?

    Do a Google search for 'seal vertebrae' and, if that doesn't help, take it to your closest natural history museum where they can compare your vertebra with their collection.
