IRISH ELK TOE BONE WITH INJURY - PLEISTOCENE, NORTH SEA.


Megaceras giganteus Blumenbach.

Single phalange or toe bone from a Giant Irish Elk.  Up towards the top end of the bone on one side is a circular hole about 0.5 cm in diam. Although this is about the size of the tip of a wolf's canine this looks more like some sort of abscess or bone disease rather than a puncture wound. Interesting.

Pleistocene, Devensian.
Dredged from the Brown Bank, North Sea off Lowestoft.

Bone :  8 cm. long.
