Hello, any help and or direction appreciated. Found in a wash with Pierre shale layer 60 meters away. First thought was Mosasaur flipper digit, but none seemed as asymmetrical as this.

Sorry, not out of the Pierre Shale.  It appears to be a worn calcaneum, likely Pleistocene to Recent.

Thanks, you guys are good. Okay clearly a mammal so it didnt come out of the pierre shale. It is fossilized, so Pleistocene makes sense. By the size likely a deer or small bos (cow)
