Big mammal vert from North Sea

Recommended Posts

Max-fossils

Hi everyone!

 

I received this vert from the Natuurhistorisch Museum Rotterdam. It was in a big box with many other fossils fished from the North Sea (Pleistocene).

The size of the vert makes me think of rhino or bison, even possibly mammoth. I asked already on Fossiel.net and they said it could be a chest vert from a bovid or a horse.

But no definitive answer came up...

What do you all think?

 

Any help appreciated,

 

Max

Looks like a dorsal vertebra roughly in the middle towards the back. I also think it looks a little small. I don't have my reference handy right now so going by the Horse might be a good candidate.
