Vertebrate and Invertebrate Paleontological Remains: San Rafael Ranch State Park, Arizona State Parks (2001)
Arizona State Parks (ASP) required the assessment of bones found exposed along the arroyo cut of the San Pedro River in San Rafael Valley, Santa Cruz County, southeastern Arizona. These remains held potential of being: 1) modern cattle (Bos) remains; 2) Spanish-age cattle (Bos); 3) Holocene-age Bison; or 4) Rancholabrean-age (> 11,000 B.P.) Bison or other large ungulate remains. This was the initial reason to enter lands held by San Rafael Ranch State Park (SRRSP). Cathy Johnson (ASP) contacted...
