Hello,

I found this on a gravel bar in a Monmouth County, NJ stream. It's a modern bone but I was hoping that someone could ID the animal that it came from. I'm guessing that it's a black bear claw but I'm not confident enough to bet on it!

Thanks in Advance,

Steve

Deer hoof core, most likely.

Odocoileus virginianus borealis, rear left lateral ungual phalanx, 4 year old male individual.

OK, I made most of that up. But it is a deer ungual.

hahaha, you had me going there for a second. I was thinking, wow, you really know your stuff. I can't beleive you can tell all that from that picture. LOL

That isn't anywhere near as interesting as a bear claw! Can we at least surmise that a bear killed this deer? :)

Thanks Guys,

Steve
