  1. Hey all, Thought I would share this blog post that has a comprehensive review of all papers in marine mammal paleontology published in 2020. Enjoy! https://coastalpaleo.blogspot.com/2020/12/2020-in-review-advances-in-marine.html

    Mammals

    I thought about expanding my mammal collection as I didn't have any, and started with some Florida material. Then I desired more exotic mammals. Ultimately I acquired a pretty nice variety. Warning, this is photograph heavy!
  3. For an extreme example of a wayward marine mammal, look at the below open access paper. Valenzuela-Toro, A.M., Zicos, M.H. and Pyenson, N.D., 2020. Extreme dispersal or human-transport? The enigmatic case of an extralimital freshwater occurrence of a Southern elephant seal from Indiana. PeerJ, 8, p.e9665 Yours, Paul H.
  4. Hey all, I wrote up some more on our recent paper on the giant dolphin Ankylorhiza (formerly Genus Y) from the Oligocene of South Carolina - this is a bit more interesting as it covers the anatomy, adaptations, feeding ecology, and evolutionary implications of the discovery. Hope you can give it a read! https://coastalpaleo.blogspot.com/2020/08/ankylorhiza-tiedemani-giant-dolphin_9.html
  5. Hey all, Since COVID began and I've had more free time I've been getting back to blogging, and now I'm regretting taking such a hiatus since I started here in Charleston. I've written the first of a 2 or 3 part series of semi-technical blog articles that most here should understand and appreciate on our new study on the giant dolphin Ankylorhiza tiedemani (formerly known as Genus Y). The first post is about the background to our paper, and the second one will be a bit more on the anatomy, feeding behavior, locomotion, and evolutionary implications of Ankylorhiza. Take a read here:
  6. It is becoming to Fossils on Wheels tradition to do a program way ahead of schedule lol I just booked our first marine mammal themed program This is about 5 months before I thought we would be ready but we do not turn down opportunities to do our thing in a classroom. The program is a look at the Miocene featuring marine mammal and shark fossils. We have just enough fossil material to touch on the West and East Coasts of the United States during this time. In fact, we have just enough material to do the program at all but we did this with dinosaurs last year and it worked out just fine.
  7. After spending the summer being more of a collector than an educator, it is time to get into educator mode. We had a good run in the spring and surpassed our own expectations. Carter and I set a big goal for this year. We want to triple the 700+ students we provided fossil education for last year. 2100 students is the goal for this year. It is going to take a lot of work but we are up to the challenge. We are already booking programs in Chico and we are starting to get some interest from schools in Fresno, Sacramento and Redding. We may end up traveling quite a bit more than anticipated this y
  8. In places where you can find both land mammal bone fragments and marine mammal bone fragments, how can you tell the difference? Would marine mammals have denser bones? Would hollow bones (marrow eaten out or other) be an indicator of land mammals?
  9. The September, Volume 18, Number 4, of the issue of the SAA Archaeological Record has series of review papers about the use of DNA and genetics in studying prehistoric and historic mammals and their past interactions with human beings. The PDF file of this issue is at: http://www.saa.org/Portals/0/SAA/Publications/thesaaarchrec/SAA Record Sept 2018 WEB 9.13.18.pdf http://www.saa.org/AbouttheSociety/Publications/TheSAAArchaeologicalRecord/tabid/64/Default.aspx The papers are: Sea Change? New Directions in Marine Mammal Research by Camilla F. S
  10. Hey all - our collections manager and I busted our tails off yesterday trying to get everything ready for the Aurora Fossil Festival on Saturday in Aurora, NC. We're going to have a table for the Mace Brown Museum of Natural History (CCNHM), our museum at College of Charleston. We've got some neat casts on display as well as a couple of cases - one is a case chock full of fossils from Folly Beach, SC, and the other is a case full of Miocene and Pliocene odontocete ear bones from the Lee Creek Mine. If you're attending, be sure to bring marine mammal fossils with you for
  11. A lot of murk and chop on the Potomac today at Westmoreland State Park made finding teeth a challenge, but as usual, there's always something to make the trip worthwhile ... This time it was three pretty nice vertebrae , missing processes, but not as worn out as many I've found. Just wondering if the smallest one is unusual? I can't picture the size of the animal based on the bones but it seems small to me...maybe there's some wisdom on it out there...
  12. Hi! Just thought I'd post three days worth of fossil hunting in Bakersfield, California. Found 250 perfect teeth, including 4 makos over 2", another 500 broken or fragments. There are also two 5 gallons filled with teeth and bone stuck in matrix. Those piece will take me a while longer to clean up, but I'll probably end up posting them too. Anyways, here's some teeth and other assorted fossils. The total haul, a nice stingray barb, and an Isurus planus at 2 1/16".
