Hello everyone, I was hoping someone could help me with the identification with this bone that I found at the Royal Peacock Opal Mine in the Virgin Valley, Humboldt County, Northeastern Nevada, USA. Geologic age is the Miocene. Bones are very rarely found in this area. It is mostly opal, petrified wood, and fossilized wood. I am guessing this came from a land mammal. Possibly a camel. Does anyone have a better idea what it could be? I donated this bone to the mine owner due to its rarity. I thought it should stay where it was found. PS: In the next few days I will post a couple of other rare fossils found at the mine by the owner's son (Jake Anderson).
