Small Artiodactyl Metapodial?


Recommended Posts

I picked these up over the summer in pleistocene age Galveston Bay dredge spoils. I think I recognize the "shaft" fragments as artiodatyl metapodial fragments, the end piece I less sure about but guessing it might be a distal end.

So what artiodactly has metaposials only 1/2" wide?

I agree with you, the two larger bones do look like artiodactyl metapodials. However, identification beyond that is purely guesswork. The most likely candidate would be white tailed deer.

I don't recognize the smaller bone, post some more pictures.
