Possible Bison bones from a sandbar


Recommended Posts

The kids and I were recently on a sandbar in the Kansas river and came across some bones. 

I believe there are bison bones, though some may be more modern. 


the first is appears to be a vertebrae. 50D3A93F-B92A-4336-A566-865244E0AE0C.thumb.jpeg.396219d7006c6b52a4110f5687d59d71.jpeg

Looks like bison vertebrae and femur to me, but I am way short of being an expert with bones idntification, so wait for some others to respond.
