Am i seeing this right? It's hard to tell without the specimen in hand, but is that a natural separation in the bone on the left side? Because following this interpretation it looks like the distal end of a bovine metatarsal. Probably ice age?  

More photos of the ends and the other side would be useful though.

Proximal end (closest to body) of a tibia bone, right side, - ungulate - small bovid/oxen?
