    • Hi, @sam-crisanti – Cool specimen! What featured helped you identify it as a whale vertebra? I’ll tag in one of our local experts to check on your identification, @jeanette-pirlo.

      Talk to you soon,

      • It certainly looks cetacean-like. this is because cetaceans have more rounded verts, almost compressed, with the spinal canal usually getting worn away quickly when the processes break off. They also have that characteristic circular/ring banding seen in image 3. cool stuff!
