Can anyone confirm it's really a mammoth rib? 71cm

Thanks!

It has the right size and shape. So I would say yes. Unfortunately, I only find those in little pieces, never complete.

Because of the (smaller) rib connection points, I also thought I could be rhino. Thanks!

Not really sure if the connection points can tell the difference. Rib vary in size and shape depending on their position in the skeleton. And there’s also sexual and individual variation.
