This week I have a specimen for you to have a go at identifying, that has come from a box of “mixed bones” that I’ve been working through:
It may look like some sort of Ewok weapon, but I’m pretty sure it’s also part of an animal. Any idea what critter this might be from?
As usual, you can leave your thoughts, comments and suggestions below. Have fun!
Hmm, definitely a back-scratcher, likely made from distal elements of a certain casqued crusader…
A big tarsometatarsus with a digit IV still attached. Based on the size alone I’d guess a big ratitie like an emu or rhea.
if it’s what I think it is, I have a pair of antique daggers carved from the same bone…..
Tmt of S.c? Seems around the right length.
I was looking at it upside down and still identified the clade. Thanks David Watson for the final clue.
