    One more Odontocete? tooth, Pliocene

    One more. What throws me off about this one is the oval root base, when all several dozen other Odontocete teeth have a circular root base, and the wear pattern on the tip. Thoughts?

    odontocete teeth ID, Pliocene

    hello everyone, I am looking for some assistance in identifying two odontocete teeth from the Pliocene Yorktown Fm, Lee Creek Mine. The first photo shows the two teeth in question on the left vs a Kogiopsis sp. tooth on the right Are the teeth in question just Kogiopsis with the crunchy outer coating intact? Marine mammal ID isn't my forte. There are 3 photos each. Interesting that the second of these teeth almost has an opaline filling of the basal cavity. Any help is greatly appreciated! TOOTH #1 TO

    Sperm Whale Tooth

    Hi guys, I know this isn’t necessarily an identification post as I’m quite sure this tooth belonged to a sperm whale. However, I have done a lot of research on other areas of Florida paleontology yet I don’t know much about ancient sperm whales or their teeth at all. I’m having trouble finding more info. I was wondering if this tooth (found in a creek close to where I live on the gulf coast of Florida) is particularly large for a sperm whale, or is this the standard size? Are they rare or difficult to find? This tooth was lying underneath the top layer of gravel alongside half of a 5 inch

    Venice Sperm Whale Tooth?

    I found my first whale tooth yesterday. Only found two cores previously. Located inland Venice, FL. This example was sheared in half longitudinally. Measures 85mm long, 48mm at widest point, 27mm diameter at point D. I find mostly Pleistocene material in this inland location. I read about only specific identifications are to the Superfamily- Physeteroidea. Anybody have other input on this tooth? My questions usually are "time period of fossil, better identification". In this inland area, I have found a half dozen bulla, a baleen whale vertebrae, and what I think is a rib. I
  5. I stumbled across Livyatan melvillei, a species of sperm whale I've never heard of or seen discussion about. It's surprising to me because it co-existed with Megalodon and some have argued that it preyed on the shark. It had teeth of around a foot-long, with some accounts of even larger. Here's one found on an Australian beach: https://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/12/science/foot-long-ancient-tooth-discovered-on-australian-beach.html I've never seen one of these for sale, presumably because they're rare or important to paleontology, perhaps both. Has anybod

    Tooth, Tusk or Bone?

    Found in Green Mill Run creek on 8/21/2020. Unsure if it is whale tooth, some type tusk or Bone. My original assumption was Sperm Whale but some have thought maybe tusk??
  7. This is a fossil whale tooth from Pohang. It was discovered at an apartment construction site in Jangryang-, Pohang. Currently, most fossil production sites in Jangryang-, Pohang, have been destroyed by construction. The fossils are fossils that were discovered while construction was in progress. It is a sperm whale's tooth fossil, and the jaw bone may be in the mother's rock, but it is not observed. (It seems unlikely.) I try to do it. Growth line is indicated by dots. In addition, the growth line can be observed through the cross section of the tooth. About 10 growth lines were observe

    Albicetus oxymycterus drawing

    Here's a new paleo-reconstuction I drew since the past two days of Albicetus oxymycterus, which is a mid-Miocene raptorial physeteroid none of you have probably heard about. Special thing between this little Moby-Dick and city I live in is that although it was not discovered directly in PV, it was discovered very nearby in Santa Barbara in the same formation and sublayer that exists here which highly suggests that it also swam here 16-14 million years ago. I tried to make this as scientifically accurate as possible using the resources I had, which included the entire 2015 paper es
  10. Hey guys, since we were on the topic of mammoth/mastodo ivory in the I.D forum, I was wondering if we could quickly talk about Schreger lines. I have found several small ivory fragments with Schreger lines and was looking through articles the other day about them and ID'ing ivory. I saw a picture of a cross section of sperm whale ivory and noticed some lines. I wanted to know are these Schreger as well or are they limited to only those in the Proboscidea order. Below is the picture, a picture of my best ivory chunk, and a link to the website I was looking at. https://www.fws.gov/l
