Looking for some help with the ID. Mineralized, large and heavy, about 10 lbs. from the white River formation in SD. Distal end of a femur perhaps? Thanks for any help with the ID.

Sure looks like it but cannot help you with an ID.  Do you have a photo of the broken end for those who can help

Where can I find some examples of Bone Histology and structure?

My initial guess is titans there.  I am not at home so I cannot compare with my own.  Maybe this weekend.

 

edit.  I am also on a stupid machine that autocorrects titanothere into Titans there.

Thank you! I have been looking into megafauna, I am just struggling to narrow it down. I feel like the lateral condyle is an unusual shape... but I really just don't know. I'll keep looking. Maybe drop by ( or shoot an email) the South Dakota school of mines or the Black hills institute.
