Archaeocete Whale Vertebra

When da f0ssZ saw the gigantic whale vertebra I pulled out, he started digging right next to me and found this. Undoubtedly these are from the same whale since they were separated by only a few feet. DF was kind enough to give me the one he found so the two could always be together. Both this and the other big whale vert came from right next to where tha duDe found his sweet auriculatis tooth as well as the tooth pictured in the ground shot on his post from today.
