Shellseeker posted a topic in Partners in Paleontology - Member Contributions to ScienceI found this bone 10 days ago , recognized a toe bone, eliminated tapir, but thought it might be Peccary because I had found a peccary molar previous time out. A bad assumption. I sent the 92.7 mm bone into University of Florida fossil Identification service, which usually means Richard Hulbert. He helps me a lot with fossil questions and identifications. I like to return the favor but in most cases, Richard has seen my fossil clones hundreds or thousands of times. YES !!!! YES !!! Found a bone that Richard needs.

At 3.65 inches, this specimen may be smaller , earlier giant beavers like Castoroides leiseyorum or Castoroides ohioensis dilophidus. Enjoy, I am... Jack
