    One of my very favorites among the extinct Pleistocene megafauna.

    I have found a near complete female cervalces skeleton In Iowa. The Ice came down the river this spring and took about 15 feet of our bank out.It was this fall before I found it when I was cutting up the trees which the ice took out.I`ll try to post some pics on here.
