Identify this bone? (pictures)

Postby MouseLover » Mon Mar 08, 2010 4:41 am

This bone was found in central Kentucky. It is a sacrum bone of some sort.

Here it is compared to an ox sacrum:

I would like confirmation as to what animal it belonged to.

Does anybody here have any idea? :?:

From the size, maybe a coyote-?

Do you have pictures of a coyote sacrum or know where I could find pictures of one to compare it to?

Ooooh...thank you. I am a college student (in social work, not biology lol) and I have a former professor who's a biologist who I was gonna ask, only to find out that she's on sabbatical! figures!

I'm still puzzled about this bone. :P

I got a message asking and I still haven't figured this out. :/

Nobody seems to have pictures of sacrums of animals such as large hogs, deer, or llamas.
