Buffalo Skull ~ Hundreds of years old? ~:
Up for sale is a large buffalo skull that looks as though it may be petrified, not sure about that but is very heavy. In 2011 we had a drought here in Nebraska. This skull was found between Ewing and Chambers in the Nebraska Sandhills. For years I hunted what is known as the Cache Creek. 2011 was the only year in my lifetime that I ever saw this creek bone dry. I was crossing an old wooden bridge on a sand trail and stopped on the bridge to explain to my wife how I had never seen this creek bone dry. I got out of my vehicle and looked about 15 yards up from the bridge and in the dry creek bed thought I saw what looked to be about 4 to 5 inches of a horn tip sticking out of the sand. I went down to investigate and began to dig and sure enough this is what I dug out. I took it home and did my best to clean it all out with an air compressor.
I am no expert but this skull looks to be very, very old. Is also very heavy. By just guessing I would say early to mid 1800's. Don't know how dating something like this works but I am sure it could be done. It probably belongs in a museum. Skull weighs a little over 23 pounds. Anyway that is all I have for information on it. Feel free to ask any questions you may have. I have had it stored in my basement since I found it. I have never seen one like this anywhere.
