So Monday my wife told me to go on a fossil trip. Actually she just wanted me out of the house so that she could have some friends over. I ended up picking a river stretch that I had covered twice over the last few months even though I figured it would be thoughly picked over. But it was sunny and 75F which is good even for Texas in January. It started out slow. An armadillo scute. A horse astragalus. And then I found this. I've only found a single camelops upper molar. This is a pair and partial palate.
About a year ago I posted pics of a distal camelid cannon bone. http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/48651-cannon-bone/?hl=camelops Now I think I have the proximal end. This piece measures 5.5 inches long and the widest measurement is 2.75 inches. Is it camel? If so, would the size suggest camelops? Thanks.
