Got this on a hunt today. Mid. Miocene, Round Mountain Silt Member, Temblor Formation. California. It is 5cm long, 3.5cm wide, 2cm thick. I am presuming whale, but don't really know. It seems strange to me in that the channels that would carry nerves or blood vessels are going perpendicular to the way it would set in the spinal column. One of the channel openings looks to be partially fused off which may have pinched nerves or blocked off blood supply. Any thoughts as to where on the critter it belonged and if indeed it is whale or not?
I purchased this tooth on an auction site for very cheap and I'm wondering what it could be. It is from Calvert Cliffs,Maryland and its 3,5cm. Thats All the information I know... I have 2 guesses: whale or Pliosaur though I think it's more whale than Pliosaur because they are very rare... What do you think? Any clue or detail would help.Thanks
