Found on northern Spain Beach

Recommended Posts

I found this bone while walking a beach in northern Spain back in January.  It is about 5" (12.5 CM) long.  The smaller end is somewhat rounded off but it doesn't look broken.  In other words, I don't think the bone was much longer than it is now.

 

Does anyone have any idea what it is? I have been told it might be a calcaneum from an ice age artiodactyl?  Agree?

 

Thank you in advance for your help.

Looks like a shoulder bone to Me.

Definitely not a leg bone.
