I wonder if there's a sizable chunk of one there? Worth informing a local museum or university really - getting that sort of bone out relatively intact is work for specialists.

What a shame!
 

I think thats quite common in the Ice age bones - many have been de-mineralised but have not had time to re-mineralise so are too weak even to bare their own weight.

 

Have you seen any other bones from the same area?

i got a smaller one(still big)which is stable,but is white in colour..that one is red which means unstable as have seen others that crumble! alot of the other animal bones(deer/horse etc)seem ok

dont reckon so,i found two teeth close by and the other bone but thats all the mammoth bits ive seen..it seems to be a small inlet where lots of bits were washed into..so far from the one place(about 20 ft wide)ive had 2 mammoth teeth,bone/rhino tooth/3horse teeth/another small tooth not identified yet/deer antler/smaller what looks like baby mammoth tooth/10 different horns and a box full of other smaller bones from deer etc i think

down amongst the stones.
