Among some recently acquired fragments of Nototherium
bones presented to the Tasmanian Museum by Mr.
Burnley, of Mella, near Smithton, and therefore in the
locality of the Mowbray Swamp, is the shaft of a femur,
obviously that of a Nototherian calf. The bone lacks the
head and major trochanter at its proximal end, and distally
both the condyles are missing, yet in spite of the several
mutilations, the specimen is of especial interest.
It is the thigh bone of an animal that has apparently
been hunted, and gripped by a carnivorous animal.
