It always amazes me how they can determine this is a whale ear bone...:)
I had to think for a minute to remember where the whale's ears are:)
You got a really nice collection:)

I should imagine that whales haven't changed much in the millions of years that they've been around. The ear bones are probably very similar to modern day whales.

Possible discovery. While trimming one of my Wyoming trilobites to make it lay flat in a Riker mount, a large flake came off the back. When I looked at it I could see fossil material showing. I chipped away a little more shale and found what appears under a loupe to be 2 tiny fish hatchlings. The longest is only 1/4" long. I'm gonna chip away a little more shale and put it under the microscope.
See what you think.

Something new for this week.



And a freebie from my favorite seller. It's polished on one end.

Got a couple more fossil pieces today.

Petrified wood from the Boron Dry Lake area of California. Boron pet wood can be every bit as colorful as Arizona rainbow wood, but has the advantage of far fewer fractures. This piece will go into my Boron mineral collection.



And a piece of Utah gem bone.
