This appears to be the distal portion of metacarpal II of a peccary.

I don't think I've ever found one of these, William, and I'm not sure what it is. Having said that, do a search for "chevron bone" (giant ground sloth) to see what you find.

That place is really a SCUBA channel. It is so far from either bank that even with 100' of hose, it is a battle.. deep and currents and log jams. I think the next PRIORITY is to rig a ramp to attach to the stern.. then we can dive directly from the boat and NOT have issues with getting back in.
Other than that, I have no issues.. just a great spot but NOT hookah accessible from shore..

Harry, where would be a good place to do a search for that? I searched Bing and Google with no luck. B) B) B) :)

I got a number of hits on an ASK.com search. Chevron bones are also known as "hemal arch
small, v-shaped bones attached to the caudal ends of the ventral surface of several caudal (coccygeal) vertebrae where they protect several coccygeal vessels; they are small in dogs, absent in horses and cattle, large in kangaroos and whales."

You may have to search for species-specific info . . . start with sloth skeleton.

Then again, it may not be a chevron bone. The museum people can tell you. Send an image to Hulbert.

Harry and Worthy, I have an absolutely perfect sloth chevron. I try and find it tomorrow and post a pic. It is much larger but I think they get smaller as they get closer to the end.
