FossilsOfKenya posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsI recently went hiking in the mountains of Kapchorwa District, Uganda. I went inside a cave and found what could be the leg bone of an animal in the ceiling of the cave, about 2-3.5 metres above the cave floor. I'm not currently sure what animal it is but I have a feeling it's a hippo's leg bone or the leg bone of a genus of proboscid such as Palaeoloxodon, Loxodonta, Deinotherium, Gomphotherium or Anancus. I want to dig it out, but I'm wondering how I can do it safely. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Sincerely, FossilsOfKenya PS: Sorry for the poor quality of the image. I only had my phone when I found it so I had to digitally enhance it.
