I am surprised that dolphins (with teeth) have an atlas vert very similar to Baleen whales.

Let's see what @Boesse thinks about similarities and differences in whale verts..

It's certainly because the Mysticeti and the Odontoceti are not separate since a long geologic time and also because it has its utility for both genus.

But i know you know it yet.:)

Owing to the large size and breadth of each condylar fossa/facet, this is probably baleen whale.

Thanks , Bobby

Found this photo that taught me a little about condyloid facets, which side the Axis vert connects, and proper orientation... Also found what appears what seem to be whale rib fragments, other vert sections and previously Baleen ear bones.

Great find!

 

Atlas verts are remarkably similar amongst all vertebrate species, probably due to the similar utility.
