    Odd bone...can anyone identify it?

    I found this bone and I've never seen one like it. Any biologists out there that can identify what it came from?

    By Jove, I think you've got it!

    I thought the joint looked odd...hadn't ever seen a cow leg joint, I guess.

    In addition to Clovis Points, there is a lot of mostly Pleistocene fossil material found on McFaddin Beach. This includes, but is not limited to bison, horse, mammoth, camel or llama, sloth and other Ice Age animal fossils which have been found, along with human archaeological artifacts.
