4 nice samples of Bakersfield

Recommended Posts

I may have posted some of these years ago but here are four nice specimens from Bakersfield not the Ernst quarries and Harts park area.  The make is a hair over 3 inches and very wide, the plants comes from the " fire zone" area of Harts park, the cow shark tooth is nice and clean and the Juvenile Desmostylus was from my last Ernst quarry digs.  Most of my collection is back in Texas but I have these and a few others with me.

That is a Desmostylus juvenile molar.  It was basically a sea going hippo.

Coco, this is a Desmostylus tooth, a semi aquatic hippo-like creature that is only found along the coastal regions of the Pacific Ocean.

Well I guess I type too slow, others beat me to it.

Hi Coco,

 

Desmostylus is also a very rare find in the bonebed, especially a complete one.  In twenty years of digging, I found only a piece of a tooth - still have that because it is so rare.
