Please help with several bones

Recommended Posts

Dear Guys,

 

I recently found some bones that are difficult to me to identify- possible mammoth rib proximal end, rhino zugoma and unidentified radius bone in Late Pleistocene sand layers of Varena Town, South Lithuania (it is Eastern Europe). The width of mammoth rib proximal end is 6,2 cm in the articular part, the bone layer in the cross section is massive. 

The length of possible rhino zygomatic bone is 5,6 cm and it has specific texture in the skull surface near eye. It is also massive and I see that thickness of bone is about 1,5 cm.

The partial radius is 10,2 cm length and 3 cm width in the lower articular part.

Any idea what this should be? :)

 

Best Regards

Domas

I would be pleased to help if possible, Domas.  I don't recognize the bones.  They may not be identifiable, at least, not from these images.
