Late Paleoindian Bison

An interesting day, as usual.  The Late Paleoindian sediments have yielded many intact bison over the years that have to be seen to be appreciated.

DSC_0653I decided to make an attempt to collect the forelimb as a whole.  Paleobond helped consolidate the bone, but the soft silt was uncooperative.  It was a risk, but a piece of masonite was slipped under the block to remove the limb as a whole.

DSC_0661A little more cleaning in the lab and this specimen will be suitable for a new museum display.  This was a young Bison antiquus.
