Find of the day yesterday!


Recommended Posts

Wanted to share this hoof I found yesterday. Not entirely sure which exact species this is but is likely neohipparion based upon the literature.

Fantastic find in really high quality... I love small horse material. :SlapHands:

 

Just curiosity .  Can you provide size measurements?

Here's some measurements. At it's highest point, it measured about 3.5 cm. Very surprised with the condition I managed to find it in!

I see! Thanks for the info :) My boyfriend definitely does the bulk of the research and we decided to check out this spot a while back because it is only a 45 minute drive away. We have been there probably 5 times now and have walked around the exact hill where I found it several times. This time I just happened to get lucky as I noticed the back of it poking out of the sand! The wind picks up quite a bit through that valley so it is possible that it was recently uncovered, and was very lucky to find it its condition. It’s definitely the most interesting fossil I have found yet and will be posting others from my small collection soon.
