Vertebra Bone

ChonktheHippo

We were in Milsap, Texas floating the Brazos river (off of Hwy 20 and 281) My husband thought he stepped on a large rock, but it was this! I can't figure out what it comes from. I looked at most livestock vertebrae and it didn't seem to match up. Very curious what we found! Please help! :-)

Looks like a bison vertebra, which would be consistent with the pleistocene fossils often found on that river.

Thank you! I'm so glad we figured it out! On a side note, do you know the best way to clean a bone like this?

That's a cervical vertebra.
