Bone of ????

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, does anyone know this bone, sold as a mammoth bone? It is more like a bison or bovine bone. Provenance: North Europe

Looks like the top process of a mammoth vertebrae to me. Bison would be smaller.

No, on the plate is written North Europe

This stuff is not my forte but I’ll add this photo to help the conversation. @fossilus Suggested the process of a mammoth vertebrae. Seems like a decent guess but I know nothing about mammoths/mastodons. I’ll let someone more knowledgeable make the call.

That would fit with the holes we see here.
