April 13, 2021 Peace River unknown osteoderm


Recommended Posts

Did not do well yesterday with the additional foot of water due to the storm, but found this little osteoderm. I don't think it's tortoise because it hasn't got the perimeter feature at it's base and it has a much more dense outer layer. 

 

Has anyone seen something similar before? I have several sloth osteoderms, but this doesn't have a similar texture to those either.

  I think it's definitely a tortoise osteoderm or "spur."  Note the dimpled texture of the glyptothere osteoderm, absent in the tortoise spur.
