American basilosaurus fossils were so common they started making furniture out of their bones. So why do they not show up anywhere???? It's only the African ones around. Anyone know anything about that furniture? And what happened to all the American basils??? *weird little factoid I think is cool. They're not 100% sure basilosaurus had a tail fluke/fin at all. I think its safe to say they definitely did, but there's never been any actual proof. No signs of a fluke have ever been found. again, I don't believe for a moment that they didn't have a tail fluke, I just think it's interesting to imagine them without. there aren't many animals that would look as natural with just a long tapering tail as basil.
I have just added 3 Abelisaur teeth to my collection, all from the same area, Ifezouane Formation Red Sandstone Beds, KemKem, Ouzina.... So not Phosphates, therefore.... As I'm aware, the only Abelisaur found in this area was Rugops, but is there a possibility of it being another of the Abelisauridae Family?? Thanks for any help guys!
