Friday mystery object #205

This Friday I have a mystery object inspired by something that might be making an appearance in Jake’s forthcoming book:


Any idea what these little pieces of bone might be?

As usual, you can put your comments, questions and suggestions below and I’ll do my best to reply. Enjoy!

  1. I think these are examples of the bones for which Jake was having trouble finding reference images; can’t think of a cryptic clue, so I’ll just say they’re from a small-to-medium species and leave it at that.

  2. Tiny ribs? Hyoid branches? Penis bones? Cat clavicles?

    It would probably be so much easier to narrow it down if I could turn them over rather than be limited to a photograph.

  3. I think some kind of split hyoid bone – but not sure if these exist. The curve on the narrow end of the bones looks a bit like a human hyoid – though the human version is one U-shaped bone
