Abstract

Taphonomic studies indicate that the gnawing action of foxes on guanaco (Lama guanicoe) carcasses produces only very tenuous marks on the bones. Lack of sustained interest in the carcasses by carnivores results in slow disarticulation. An understanding of this ongoing process is important for local archeology, since modern bones are migrating into archeological contexts. A regional approach to taphonomy is the most appropriate instrument to solve this and other related problems
