6 inch vertebra found in Peace River believe it is a whale? Just wanted some opinions its pretty beat up and any other view makes it look like a rock. Thanks justin

I do not think that it is whale -- but certainly marine mammal and my best guess is dudong. Definitely on Megalodon's dinner menu.

It's definitely not a sea cow vertebra... sea cows usually have heart shaped vertebral centra. There's nothing here preserved that would preclude identification as a baleen whale - but then again, I am unfamiliar with proboscideans.
