Ribs Of Something Or Another


Recommended Posts

I found these ribs today just sitting there in front of my face. Walked over them several times over the last couple of days. Going back up there with a shovel and more time after the rain. Most likly fell down in a slide...I took the pic before I dug it up..in real soft silica sand. Came down from above I'm thinking...side wall picture..Oh..it's the bottom 2 rib pieces...very curved

Whale? Seacow? Mammoth? All found in the area...

all within the same pit but at several different layers... The bottom 2 in question today were right next to each other...

Giant sea cow Hydrodamalis cuestae. I take it that this is your same Pliocene fossil locality.
