I'm currently in Colombia but back in the city after a caving expedition. But of course I'm always looking for fossils too. He is a little teaser from the trip. More pics to come later.

Pottery found. When my friend sends me some of the photos taken I can show more fossils and human remains found in caves.

Congratulations, that's a wonderful sloth claw core.  Were you able to recover it out of the wall?  Are you certain that it belongs to genus Megatherium?  I can't quite tell species from pic, although I'm not too well versed in S. American giant ground sloth species.  But I know there are a plethora there...S. America is the cradle of Xenarthran evolution.
