3.3" Fossil Whale Ear Bone - Miocene
This is a 3.3" fossilized whale inner ear bone (Tympanic Bulla) that is Miocene in age. It was collected in the Southeast United States where they are found associated with Megalodon teeth and other fossil shark teeth. This particular specimen is much higher quality than most which are often found heavily water worn and eroded. This specimen has two white semi circles that are anchor points for barnacles that adhered to the fossil after it eroded out of the substrate.
