3.9" Fossil Whale Ear Bone - Miocene
This is a 3.9" 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 is a very well preserved specimen. An area of bone is exposed on the proximal end of the bone. The opposite end has a polychaete worm shell that occurred after fossilization.
