Recommended Posts


I need help to identify these fossils I found in the Nishnabotna River at Botna Bend park in Iowa. What animals and what bones they are, thank you.

I believe the first one is deer.

Distal humerus from deer.

Second looks turtleish

Last one may be proximal phalanx- cervid or bovid. (Large deer, moose? or cow/bison)

Deer distal humerus, I think.


Probably a horse proximal phalanx, but other views might confirm.
