    Re: Bones, Bones, Bones . . . Who Has Some Interesting Fossil Bones?

    I am game here are a few.

    Pictures not as good as yours but well best I can.




    Part of a Mammoth Or Mastodon scapula



    Again either a Mammoth or Mastodon partial Radius ulna,but I lean more towards Mastodon on this one.




    Part of a Woolly Mammoth jaw
    Notice how much smaller a woolly was then a Columbian Mammoth.




    Part of a Mastodon Upper palate.




    A Mammoth jaw minus the teeth that sucks but the way it is stayed under water to long.




    My best full grown 6th molar Mammoth jaw again a part of one,if complete I would of needed a new set of lungs to carry it that far,from deep water.




    Musk ox partial skull.

    I have more but enough for now.

    So lets see them folks.

    Nice bone Harry.
    Must be nice in Florida but do not think I could get over all those gators swimming around with me.

    That is a fine group of fossils reef12, I especially like the musk ox skull.

    Has anyone else out there found a musk ox skull? If so I'd sure like to see it.

    Nice array of elephant fossils, 'reef12' !

    I like that musk ox, too -- they didn't get this far south (Florida). Except for bison, the bovids are northern fossils.

    Show us some more bones!

    A close-up of the entepicondylar foramen of a small, Early Miocene mustelid

    This canal occurs near the distal end of the humeri of many taxa. This is the canal traversed by the median nerve and the brachial artery which is called the entepicondylar foramen (EECF).

    An EECF is found neither on the humeri of perissodactyls (horses, tapirs, et al.) nor on the humeri of artiodactyls (antelopes, camels, et al.), nor is it found in lagomorphs (rabbits and such).

    The EECF is absent in hyaenids, bears, and canids (including foxes and chihuahuas).

    The EECF is present in didelphids (opossums) and in shrews and moles! (Micro-fossil collectors take note.)

    The EECF is present in felids, in viverrids (all Old World), in amphicyonids (bear-dogs), and in mustelids (weasels and skunks) and procyonids (raccoons).

    Ok, here is what I've got. Small mammal, and large reptile...

    Here is what I have found, all of the large "dino" bones were found in a field by me when I was 6 years old. My grandfather had plowed it, and they were just sticking up everywhere, and I went to town! I wish we still owned the land, because I would be back there all the time! Only ones I can identify are the turtle scoots. Click image for larger version.

    Maybe so maybe no.

    Attachment 1245407Attachment 1245409Wow! So many really amazing fossilized bones I'm not sure if this is worthy but I hope someone may find it interesting. Found in Northern Minnesota.
    Maybe some suggestions as to what this may be. Magnetized all around except where there appears to be bone.
    Thanks for the look.
