apharm49 posted a topic in Fossil IDI found this on the Yellowstone River after high water, it had washed onto an island on the river and gotten caught in an old tree that was also beached on the island. It is 22" from tip to tip and heavier than I would have expected as if it has begun mineralization. The base of the horn cones are 3 1/8" at their largest dimension. Could this be a Bison Antiquus? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
If anyone would like a free sample of sifted or unsifted matrix soil from the bison excavation I was involved in, please send me a private message. The interior cavity soil has been 1/4" screened and came from the rib cage and thoracic area of the nearly complete bison skeleton mentioned in other threads on this forum. I also have unscreened matrix from the cranial, nasal, and oral cavities of the skull. NOTE: this unscreened skull matrix has lots of bone fragments in it. If you are able to pick up in or near Austin, I would be happy to meet you. Otherwise, if you want to send a self-addressed stamped package with the amount of soil you'd like, I will gladly send samples back to you. I'm not seeking any financial compensation, or financial loss-- so if you want a sample please just cover the shipping cost. In return I just want you to share what you find! Let me know if you're interested.
