    Whale Otolith, bone, or rock?

    Hi guys! This was found off the coast of North Carolina by a scuba diver, My first thought was huge weathered otolith but I'm not sure and would like a second opinion if it might be another bone or a rock. It's a little over 5 inches. Thanks!

    Is this a whale bone?

    I'm thinking this a whale bone, maybe a humerus? Found in Mendocino, California. Thanks for your help!
  3. Found in the Lee Creek spoils pile. Is this a whale vertebra or possibly a digit bone? The somewhat flattened and oval cross section kind of looks like images of whale digit bones to me, but I am far from knowledgeable about this. Bonus with this find is the shark tooth embedded in the concretion on the top of the fossil. Any guesses as to what it is?

    Help ID'ing Cape Town Find

    Hi there! My girlfriend and I finally managed to get to the fossil spot here in Cape Town - South Africa (a spot where fossilized shark teeth and whale bone wash up onto the beach) and we are both hoping that what we have found is actually fossilized bone! If any of you could confirm what this is I would be extremely grateful!
  5. Hi everyone. It has been a while since I have made a post. Between some health issues and all the RAIN we have had here in NC this summer, the trips have been few. Not to mention all of the quarries still being closed due to covid. Recently I was granted permission to search a small, private agricultural limestone marl quarry. It is Eocene Castle Hayne Formation, Comfort Member. Now before anyone asks, no I will not say where or nor will I be bringing anyone to it. It is very small and my permission is very tentative. I have to get permission each time I go. It is a smorgasbor

    New additions to my collections!

    Hi everyone! I want to introduce some new additions to my teeth collections. 1. Nodosaur tooth from Judith River Formation This tooth is from Hill Co. Montana. Has nice set of serrations, and 10 mm wide. There are two genus of Nodosaur known from Judith River F. : Edmontonia and Palaeoscincus, thus, this is a Nodosaurid indet. 2. Pygmy sperm whale (Kogiopsis) tooth from Hawthorn Formation This tooth has no tip, but have enamel and root. This is slightly larger than 3 inch
  7. Found these in a creek in Maryland. I’m most interested in identifying items 1-4 but let me know if you have any ideas for the rest too. I think 8 might be the edge of a turtle shell because it’s wedge shaped. Item 7 looks like a rib to me.
  8. 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
  9. I’m almost certain this is not a fossil, but didn’t know where else to go. My buddy found this tooth/tusk in his attic and I’ve been having a tough time telling for certain what it is. No idea where it was found. Sperm whale was what first came to mind, but I don’t see a very clear boundary between the crown and the root. Doesn’t seem to match smilodon, walrus, boar, or any other similar possibilities that came to mind. Does anybody more familiar with this type of stuff have any idea what we’re looking at? He confirmed that it’s hollow which is another check in the sperm wh

    Calvert cliffs

    Recent trip to Calvert cliffs, finally was able to get a boat out on the water after years of planning. Did pretty well, I’m hoping the haul is a little bigger next time because it’s a lot of paddling. Here’s the haul. This is a large whale vertebra I found. All the shark teeth I found at Calvert. The large mako was in a fall and I was hoping it was whole but alas, the time was broke. Oh well. Still a not bad day.

    James River

    The James river was not what I had expected. I was hoping to find a meg the size of my hand, but that didn’t happen. No worries, I had a lot of fun. I saw a river otter, a lot of osprey, eagles, and more wildlife which was fun to look at from a distance. The first day of the trip, we went over the east over formation, I collected mostly whale bone from that day and nothing else spectacular. It was only when we went to a Yorktown exposure on the last hour of the trip that I found three stunning chesapectens, including what I think the biggest one to be a jeffersonius. Later that day, I went to

    Whale? Crocodile? Bear?

    Hello! I found one yesterday that's stumped me. I've used the NC fossil club book and the Google and I've not seen anything like this. The smoothness of the upper part is throwing me off as the other whale teeth I have are textured. Same with the crocodile. This was found in NC where the Pliocene Yorktown and Miocene Eastover are exposed. I can take measurements later if needed. Thanks in advance!
  16. This is my first fossil bone find. It was found near the mussleshell river in Montana. More specifically Roundup MT. It appears to be some sort of a whale bone fossil. I'm not sure? Any suggestions?
  17. I'm looking to clean 2 whale verts i found long ago. I am experienced with prepping mammoth and rhino teeth but not whale. Can anybody help me?
  18. It's been a challenging season on the Peace River for various reasons. Was sidelined for most of Feb and March with some minor health issues and forbidden by my doctor (and wife) from going in the water until all was healed. Add to that what appears to be a tremendous amount of sand built up in some of my favorite hunting spots by last seasons heavy rains. Then throw in a lot of debris restricting portions of the river to narrow passages. All together it has hindered my luck with any major finds. Can only hope for some of the success our friend Jack - @Shellseeker has been having lately!
  19. 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.

    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

    Help ID Whale tooth+

    Had a beautiful day hunting the Peace River, FL yesterday and came away with some intriguing finds. From prior postings and photos I reviewed provided by @Harry Pristis and @Shellseeker I believe the first exciting find of the day was a small whale tooth and I am seeking confirmation on that here. The tooth measures 37 mm x 10 mm and I believe it shows the hint of the ring pattern referenced by Shellseeker as his tell tale sign of whale. This next tooth has me wondering if i
  22. Ive been slowly working on our house these last 3 months or so. Yesterday the misses and I went out to the big garage to find certain things to do some white washing. I was looking around seriously and the misses was just looking around. Here is what she ran into! Not a clue as to why these were with all the paint stuff but Id say it was a purty good find. Not sure what I'm going to do with them, they all need some clean up, prep, sandblasting and or repair. I remember buying these sometime in the 1990's. Must have somehow put them with all the paint stuff when we moved to Montana. If
  23. Hey all! Between an ill-timed conference, election month, the pandemic, online teaching, and a few other issues, I was way too stressed out and busy to be on here regularly since October. Also, in mid November we began digging up a small basilosaurid whale in Harleyville, SC - very likely to be the most completely known specimen of the dwarf basilosaurid Chrysocetus, and perhaps the most important basilosaurid discovery in North America of my lifetime. I did manage to write a blog post about our fieldwork, so as an apology for being AWOL and only getting back to identifying cetacea

    Cetacean Skull Fragment?

    Hi guys, I found this bone cluster on the shore of the Black Sea, near the city of Balchik, Bulgaria. From the region there have been findings of Miocene cetaceans, seals and some ground megafauna. The more circular bone somewhat reminds me of an ear bone but comparing it with pictures of fossil dolphin ear bones I can't say if it really is one. So my question is if it is an ear bone and if it is, does that mean that´s a part of a skull? Any help on the identification of the fossil will be very much appreciated! Best regards!

    Prehistoric Whale Vertebrae?

    This is a fossil found near many sharks teeth in the Northern Neck of Virginia. It was found on the side of a cliff in Westmoreland County VA. Any help would be much appreciated!
