This an assortment of bones I have stumbled upon in the woodland close to to my house. I've made a few guesses as to what they belong too but I dont know for sure.
My guesses In order of Pictures:
1. Pelvic Girdle of ???????
2. Fox Skull?
3.Rib of ?????
4.Ungulate Limb bone?
5. Thoraic Vertebrae of ???????
Any ideas as to what they are from?
The skull (P1030329.jpg) and the pelvis (P1030328.jpg) belonged to a carnivorous mammal, my guess is: dog. The humerus (P1030331.jpg) looks too massive to have belonged to a dog. Any idea of the size of these specimens? The humerus looks like one of a herbivorous animal, cow or horse. The rib doesn't have the head and neck which help an ID, so it will be hard to tell from just this photo.Maybe if you took a few other photos, to show what the section of the rib's body is like. Horse is oval, cattle is 'tailed', etc.
Thank you for the reply, the Humerus is approximately 15 cm long and 6cm wide. My camera is out of battery so I will have to charge it to take a picture of the rib, but the cross section looks rectangular and fairly flat in shape.
