    Petrosal for ID

    I found this petrosal on a South Carolina beach near Charleston. I would love to know the animal it belonged to. Is it cetacean @Boesse by any chance? Thanks for looking. Scale is CM.
  2. Here is an odd shaped bone that I think could possibly be an inner ear bone. It is nearly .5 inches long and .25 inches wide. What do you think it is? Any guess on what size/type of animal? It was found on a beach near Jensen, Florida. Thanks much for all your help.

    Ear Bone Possibility?

    Never seen fossil in my dig sites. Inland Venice, FL. Reddish tint. Longest length is 48mm. Width 33mm. Material from this site has Equus and Sloth fossils. I did find a "whale tooth" within 50 feet of this fossil. I have recovered other whale ear bones that did not look like this one. Thank you in advance for your ID assistance. Regards, Michael
  4. Hello all! Sorry for the not-so-great photos here. My phone camera is... kind of a fossil. I found this mystery fossil on the beach in North Carolina, USA, somewhere near Emerald Isle if I'm recalling correctly. My best guess is that it's a periotic bone from a dolphin, porpoise, or something of the like, but it doesn't totally match up with images I've seen. I've also considered that it could be a ballast bone, but again, hard to confirm via Google search. Any thoughts would be appreciated!
  5. I have spent many hours on this forum, but this is the first time I am posting because this inner ear bone has me completely stumped. It is the first inner ear bone I have found, and it appears to be the periotic of a small/medium cetacean. I see strong similarities with some dolphins and pygmy sperm whale specimens also pulled from the Peace River in Arcadia, FL, but none that really match up. I am new to identifying anything beyond teeth, but I was excited to find this and would love to have a better idea of what animal it is from.

    Whale Ear Bone

    I found this in a creek in the Charleston, South Carolina area where I often find sharks teeth and whale bones. I believe the site is Oligocene/Pliocene. If found anywhere else, I would have assumed it was a piece of gravel and tossed it, but it does look a little strange. Perhaps someone with more experience in the Cenozoic can help with the ID. The item is about 3 inches at its longest dimension. Like I said, I am thinking tumbled gravel on this one, but figured that I would check before throwing it in the garden.
  7. My friend found a couple of interesting bone pieces while digging at Ernst Quarries last weekend. In the same hole, she found what may be two small cetacean periotic bones, as well as a small dolphin tooth. All three are included included in associated images. She wasn't digging a particularly large hole, so I can't help but wonder if they are all from the same animal. While there may be no way to tell, the possibility is intriguing to this newbie's mind. Of course, I may even be wrong about my ID of the bones. Any input regarding the donor species, etc., is greatly appreciated. Cheer

    Fla "Creek" Find

    Need some help with this one. I really don't have any idea what it might be -- other than possibly some skeletal bone or maybe even some kind of periotic ear bone??? The only age and location info I can supply is that I found it in a bag of Fla "cookie cutter creek" matrix that I got from @jcbshark -- maybe he'll chime in with an ID. Hope the pics are adequate; and please note they were taken without regard for the positional indicators on the metric cube. (This is my 1st attempt at resizing and posting pics, so please be gentle.) Thanks for looking...... and helping.

    Whale Ear Bone

    The guy I got this from said that this is a whale ear bone. Is that true?
  10. Hello, I found these today walking along the beach along with about 200 teeth. I found a lot of bone fragments but wasn't sure what type of fossils are in the attached pictures. The one looks like an ear bone or something. Any help would be much appreciated... Thanks !!!

    Is This A Whale Ear Bone?

    Ear bones have never been my favorite thing. And, that's a good thing 'cause - except for mysticete whale bullae in some locations - ear bones are hard to find. Here's one I've had for a long time. I have always thought of this as an ear bone of Zygorhiza, an archaeocete whale; but, I have no confirmation of that. The bone is in three pieces, broken along old cracks judging by the stains. It may have broken in my collecting bag - I don't remember. The broken surfaces reveals a dense, white, glassy material. Anyway, the interior is so surprising, and the cross-section of the bone is so

    Is This A Whale Ear Bone?

    It is similar to bones I have seen that have been identified as dolphin ear bones. So, I thought this larger one may be to a whale? In truth, its a wild guess.
