Shark Vertebra

These are the fossilized remains of Shark Vertebrae. Sharks have cartilage bones, so it seems like these, too would disappear with the rest of the deceased shark's carcass, but amazingly enough, they are relatively common. I find at least two or three of these everytime I go fossil hunting, although they are rarely this big.
