NEXT SHOW: Sat., Dec.5 10am-5pm Katy Old Fashioned Christmas Festival in Old Towne Katy, Texas



Whale Vertebra

Regular price $60.00

Item: Whale Vertebra
Age:
Miocene-Pliocene (22 - 4.5 myo)
Size: 5 x 5 x 5.75"H" 
Location: North Carolina
Notes:. It is incredibly difficult to identify the exact species these fossils originated from without also finding associated skull and jaw parts, or teeth. We do know with high probability they are from a whale spinal column. Although the processes are very rarely preserved, we can identify this giant is a vertebra from the upper or lower back, as opposed to the neck or tail of the whale. So cool!
