From the Desk of … Lesser Gonzalez Alvarez

This week I asked artist, illustrator, and writer Lesser Gonzalez Alvarez to share a picture and talk about one item on his desk.

The fossil closest to the camera is a tooth belonging to an extinct species of North American Bison. With horns 3 times larger in span than the modern American Buffalo, Bison Latifrons, was considerably larger. It lived in North America during the Pleistocene. Bison Antiquus, sometimes referred to as ‘Ancient Bison’, also lived in North America during the Pleistocene, which is about 240,000 to 220,000 years ago. Bison Antiquus was a very common large herbivore, and a direct ancestor of the American Bufffalo. – Lesser Gonzalez Alvarez
