Brett Breakin' Rocks posted a topic in Partners in Paleontology - Member Contributions to ScienceI finally made it out in July to a location near Charleston I am always mentioning, but had never personally visited. After 3 dry years of no ear bone periotics they started showing up in triplicate this summer. Probably was able to discern their shape better after seeing so many examples. Not much else showed up for me that day save a few tiny teeth. But it led to my first, albeit small donation. Common or Scientific Name: Odontoceti indet. (delphinid periotic ear bone) Geologic Formation: Undetermined - ( Fossil dredge from this site typically contains Oligocene Ashley Formation, Lower Miocene Marks Head Formation, Lower Pliocene Goose Creek Limestone, and Pleistocene Wando Formation ) Geologic Age: Undetermined - Oligocene (?) But potentially Pliocene - Pleistocene Region the fossil was found: Charleston, South Carolina Museum or University that received the fossil: Mace Brown Museum of Natural History at the College of Charleston Reason for donation: Well preserved and perfect for the fossil survey. Found and donated (July 23, 2019) to Dr. Bobby Boessenecker Dr. Bobby Boessenecker - " Ashby (Gale) and I (but mostly Ashby, since he's out more often) have been putting together a collection of riverbank ear bones from West Ashley, Johns Island, and Mount Pleasant, and this is quite a well preserved one that would go nicely into the eventual paper. "
I am not sure what this goes to but was really curious being it was not as thin as I would expect from a fish. The second picture is the underside. Per request, I have added a few more images, I hope this helps. Thanks for everyone's input as always!
