Bison antiquus Skull cast replica #2
Bison antiquus Skull cast replica. Item # BC-313
Age: 12,000 years (late Pleistocene). Discovered at Ayer Pond, Orcas Island, in the Pacific Northwest in 2003. The skull of this specimen is considered to be one of the finest and largest found to date. With a horn spread of 31 inches, Bone Clones captured all the incredible detail of the original, including the intact nasals. Significantly, the bones suggest human activity in this region about 800 years before the Clovis era. The evidence supplied by the bones is consistent with butchering by humans and inconsistent with carnivore activity (e.g., wolves would have typically damaged the nasals, bears would not typically have broken the humerus at its thickest point, and there would have been far more surface damage to the bones).
