April 6th, 2018 Peace River unknown


Recommended Posts

These 2 items were the only finds of interest on my trip to the Peace yesterday. I'm assuming the vert is mastodon or mammoth, but the other little item is a stumper. I feel like I've seen it before somewhere, but I can't place it. One wing is broken, but I couldn't toss it back before finding out what it is. I'll post the 2nd view in the reply.

John,

I have found only a couple much more worn than yours and considered it a likely section of a turtle/tortoise Nuchal scute.

I found this Vertebrae a couple of years back and believe it to be Mastodon because of teeth and tusk found in the same location..

Not sure if Mammoth is distinguishable from Mastodon. 

I was also out yesterday, maybe we were in relatively close proximity.

I expect to see you guys on my way back downstream on my way home, but all I see is Fred Mazza's groups. Hope the rain this weekend doesn't put us off for a couple weeks!
