Fossil Horse Bone, Equus Sp, Peace River, Pleistocene


This is a fossil horse (Equus Sp.) bone recovered from the Peace River in Florida. The exact species is unidentified. Horses once roamed America over 10,000 years ago, but they went extinct and were later re-introduced by the Spanish during their explorations of the New World. These fossils are now found in the famous "Bone Valley" formation of Florida that the Peace River runs through.

This bone is in fair condition, but is somewhat brittle because it was found underwater. It is stable enough for display and handling. It is approx. 9 inches long and 1.75 inches thick at it's widest point.
