    Crystal Tubes In Whalebone?

    Hi TFF, I've posted about this Pliocene baleen whale jaw section from Florida before, and its the gift that keeps on giving! Within the fossil there are 2 significant crystalized structures which I would love further clarity on. Are they the remanence of soft bodied organisms burrowing in the bone? Or are these structures mineral deposits similar to those found in shelled cephalopod fossils when water gets into the specimen? Or something completely different? The first specimen is 1.7/2cm in length. I would love to know your thoughts

    Large Whale Jawbone

    Hi All, I've received this piece of baleen whale jawbone (measuring 57cm/22.4 inches) however upon purchase there wasn't information available on possible species or even the formation it was found. The only information provided was that this was a partial whale jaw from the Pliocene from Florida. when contacting the seller I've found that the individual who collected this specimen was out megalodon tooth hunting in a river system on the east side of Florida. I hope that is enough information to give a rough idea which formation this fossils is from as I know the megalodon tooth hunting c
  3. Hello all, I have a small baleen whale skull that I need to preserve. It was found on a beach and the sun had bleached it. After a short time it has started to flake, crack and sort of fall apart. It's very aged and porous, is there something I can coat it in to preserve it?

    Baleen whale epiphysial disc collected from Pliocene Yorktown formation sediments of Greens Mill Run, Greenville, NC.

  5. A while back I collected several pieces of sizeable whale bone from Greens Mill Run and was able to ID them as to specific skeletal element (several were ribs, verts, mandibles, etc.). However, this one piece is fairly sizeable and has a distinct shape (it is worn down some), pretty sure it’s part of a skull, but can’t figure it out. Any whale experts out there think they might can help? It’s from the Yorktown formation, and even though Greens Mill Run cuts through other formations, this one came from a section of the creek with Pliocene exposures and the other whale bones I was able to ID, so
  6. Made a recent trip to Greens Mill Run and got quite a few nice fossils, particularly fossil bone. Large fragment of a Pliocene baleen whale lower jaw bone, whale rib fragment, baleen whale tympanic bullas, unfused whale vertebral epiphysis, Chesapectens jeffersonius, other Chesapectens spp., clams, etc. All collected in-situ, all from the Yorktown formation. Also quite a few sharks teeth collected from gravel bars. Also one pic, the one with the belemnites lined across the top, is all in-situ Cretaceous stuff. Great trip, digging the stuff up was a nice change from all the gravel sifting haha

    Land Hunt

    Last night about 5:30 pm, I got a call from a very good friend. He said that he and others were going land hunting for Great Whites !!! Was I interested .... Do bears....? So I considered the outlook: Drive at high rates of speed sometimes in driving rain for 90 minutes to reach the hunting site. Weather predicted as Thunder and Lightening with driving rains that was sure to raise puddle and make sucking mud that would reach my knees. Perfect !!!! I scrambled to get my gear (halogen head lamps, scuba boots, light wetsuit for the mosquitos, etc while my understanding spouse made a th
  9. Not exactly a paleontology-related article, but does anyone by any chance have access to a copy of the recent paper describing the new Rice's whale Balaenoptera ricei? Rosel, P.E., Wilcox, L.A., Yamada, T.K., Millin, K.D. (2021). A new species of baleen whale (Balaenoptera) from the Gulf of Mexico, with a review of its geographic distribution. Marine Mammal Science. 37(2): 577-610. doi:10.1111/mms.12776
  10. A new paper regarding a new archaic toothless mysticete just came out today: Robert W. Boessenecker and R. Ewan Fordyce (2014). "A new Eomysticetid (Mammalia: Cetacea) from the Late Oligocene of New Zealand and a re-evaluation of Mauicetus waitakiensis". Papers in Palaeontology. in press. doi:10.1002/spp2.1005. Tohoraata is the newest addition to the list of primitive toothless mysticetes, but the paper should not come as a surprise to anyone interesting in extinct cetaceans because Mauicetus lophocephalus and M. waitakiensis have long been recognized as more primitive than the type species
