I found my first Whale bulla on a Carolina beach. I would love to know what kind of whale it is from. @BoesseE-Whale-Bulla.thumb.jpg.da62fbf61f88e307ebce60245aa1b621.jpg

Sorry for being AWOL! This is a Pliocene or Pleistocene specimen and probably from the dwarf right whale Balaenula, though depending upon how fragmented it is it could be from a "keeled bulla" balaenopterid like "Balaenoptera" borealina. Nice find!

Thank you so much for taking the time to have a look at my finds Bobby! I am very pleased to be able to be able to narrow down the ID to a couple of possibilities. Now I am off to learn more about these whales...
