Descrizione
Basilosaurus - frammento della mascella - Zeuglodon, Basilosauridae - 145×102×31 mm
PALEOGENE - Eocene, Priaboniano (33,9-37,8 milioni di anni) - Marocco

This is a wonderful jaw fragment of a Basilosaurus, one of the first genera of whales. Basilosaurus was at its time the largest animal on Earth. It could be 15 to 18 metres long and weighed about 60 tons.

I have visited the area where these teeth were found, and as such I have good contacts there now. These teeth and jaw fragments are found in a hard sand layer and are usually broken in the layer. This jaw was also found cracked in the layer and was stabilized directly after the find and treated with a preservative. The resulting cracks are filled up. In the jaw fragment there is one tooth that is about 7 cm long. The tooth was broken in the layer and has been glued. Where the tooth is stuck, the enamel has been filled up a bit. The jaw fragment measures 14.5 x 10.2 cm. Beautiful decorative fossil and an asset to any collection.
