Animal Or human ?


Recommended Posts

Crossing the Guadalupe River ( a Texas State Park)  today when one of my dogs picked this bone up out of tree ramble/debris in the water. I thought it was very interesting, so I snapped a video and set it down on a boulder. I had plan to pick it up on my way back out. 
But I forgot all about it and took a different route back to my car.
I am home now, going through my pictures and ran across the video.

As you may imagine I’m really worried it might be a human bone, 

. Can y’all help me out with what you believe the bone to be. Human or animal. 

for reference I am 5’5”

Trying to figure out how to get the video to play. You have to run your finger along the time bar in order to get the video to play.

You really need to post the photo/video on the forum, not just a link.


But it looks to me like a deer tibia. The end with the double notch looks like the articulation with the astragalus of a deer.

Probably modern deer.
