Vertebrae Id Help

Recommended Posts

Found this Friday at the MM Belgrade quarry. Belgrade formation, maybe Oligocene or Miocene. What I will call the proximal side is about 3.5 inches. The distal side tapers to 3 inches. It is just under 3 inches wide.

Posted pictures further down the thread.

Sure looks like a whale vert perhaps Pelocetus.

This is the only one of four photos kirk is trying to post.

The only certainty with fossil hunting is the uncertainty.

I agree with cetacean caudal.

Thanks I was thinking it was whale also but it is the first piece I have ever found out here that I could see any form in at all. Most of my other whale finds came from Lee Creek and I do not have any like this one.

It is heavily mineralized which also distinguishes it from my finds from Aurora.

Thanks again.
