A few surface finds from today’s hike

Hi all,

 

I have some interesting bones that I found today. The one appears to be a phalanx but it doesn’t appear like any of the horse or camel material I’ve been able to find online. I also believe that the tooth fragment belongs to order Carnivora, although I’m not sure what. The researchers found a maxilla to Osteoborus diabloensis at this site but again, I have no clue in the matter. Also note, the phalanx has a lichen growing on it, which tells to the degree of time it’s been resting on the hard desert surface. Thank you to anyone that can provide any ideas/resources/IDs.

Nice finds! The last item however looks to be geologic.

The metapodials and phalanx look like cat.  I don't recognize the last item, but I don't think it's cat.

I'll have to retake a picture, I'm still trying to find the best conditions to take photos of these. It has several articulating facets and a groove for a ball and socket joint on the other side. I'll add some later!
