Recommended Posts

Hey Hi Folks,

I Found this bone at Sharktooth hill this spring. It has been hiding in one of the buckets of matrix that I collected.

Is it a Sea Lion femur?

Is it possible to tell which critter it came from?

Thanks for the help!!

Nope, that's a baleen whale humerus. Pinniped femora look like this: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-QKExTRNJWOE/UrDVG-tv_FI/AAAAAAAAC-Q/e3GamvpC5R4/s1600/Figure+3.jpg

Thanks Bobby! :fistbump:
