Little Tea Pot Short and Stout


Recommended Posts

Thoughts on this stout metacarpal? Southern Minnesota gravel/river find. I only ask because farmers have run their cattle on the river in this area since I was a young man. This looks like bison to me though based on the proximal end and how stout it is.

I'm puzzled, @dbrake40; what is it that you agree with?

I will say it was more of a thumbs-up than a agreement. Although after looking at the great info you provided I think I can safely say I believe the specimen is bison. This was my original guess from past posts as well... Thanks.

Lol - underwater most of the day unfortunately. The river's are so low by us it doesn't even pay to drag a kayak along!
