Dear Guys, Yesterday I found the small but very thick skull bone fraction with brain imprint preserved, it is between 1,5 and 3,2 cm thick and 6 cm length. I have seen the central line in frontal bone that is visible in mammal skull but my find has quite massive ridge near central head line that is visible in the side of fragment. I would think it can belong to mammoth but I am not completely sure. Judging by small anatomy and thickness of bone, what it might be? Best Regards Domas
Dear Guys, Today I found the lower articular piece of big femur, the length of articular end surface is 13 cm. It is very similar to bison but judging by size I think it could belong to hippopotamus. I also checked wooly rhino but there are some differences in the articular surface. Any idea what it might be? Best Regards Domas
Dear Guys, I recently found the triangle bone in dolomite erratic of Varena town, South Lithuania, it is 4 mm length. It has the wider growths in the lower sides and straight blunt bony growth in the top. The dolomite also has poorly visible calcified lenses (maybe oncolites?). The erratic is typical to Triassic arid conditions and should belong to Late Triassic epoch because frogs from Early Triassic are found only in Madagascar island.
