Associated Miocene Dolphin

Recommended Posts

Here are some pics of a project I have been working on. These bones come from a Calvert formation (lower to mid Miocene) dolphin found on August 2. There are two pics of the same block from different angles. The second pic was done after a little more work and I had uncovered another vertebra. In this block there are at least six vertebrae (including the atlas), a humerus, and a rib (the end is just visible above the "2" on the ruler).post-12754-0-90854800-1387034123_thumb.jpgpost-12754-0-36362900-1387034143_thumb.jpg

More to come as collection and preparation continues.

Really nice prep, very interesting. If you are married, you are in so much trouble for ruining that towel--LOL----Tom

Yes, I have caught flack for the towel.

A pick, hammer and screwdrivers to remove the blocks. Dental tools and a toothbrush to expose the bones.

You definitely have found an awesome specimen!!!!!! When you find the atlas vertebra, and a humerus in addition to a skull and jaw you should be able to really nail the identification of the specimen.
