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.
