ICE AGE HARE BONES - DEVENSIAN, FRANCE.


Lepus sp.

Two species of hare are known from the late Pleistocene of Europe. The varying hare Lepus timidus Linn√© was slightly smaller than the Brown hare Lepus europaeus Pallas.  These two leg bones and the vertebra were found in a cave deposit with Hyaena remains. Hyaenas usually chew everything and crush the bones of their prey but it is likely they are the remains of a meal. From a nineteenth century French collection. Old label supplied.

Pleistocene, Devensian.
Papin de Garenne, France.

Longest bone fragment : 7cm.
