Should Bone Cow/Bison/?

Recommended Posts

Found this in the waters of a local North Texas stream.  I'm assuming it is a old cow bone.  But if you see something different, let me know!  I'll go search for the rest of it!

That indeed looks like a bovid scapula to me! If you could take a picture straight onto the joint (left side on your first picture), that would make it even more clear :)

Yes, that's Bovid.

Probably "just" cow. Could also be Bison, but maybe looks wider/flattened than this one.  Someone else might have one in their collection to compare :)

 

Still a nice find though!
