Prehistoric whale skeleton found

6 posts in this topic

Apr. 3

ROME, Italy -- Italian researchers have found the skeleton of a 33-foot prehistoric whale in the Tuscan countryside, a discovery that could shed light on the ancient environment of the sea.

The skeleton dates to 4 million years ago, to the Pliocene epoch.

The skeleton is complete and a variety of organisms were found around the fossil as well.

The skeleton was found a few weeks ago in Orciano Pisano, in the countryside about 50 miles east of Florence. It was found about 100 yards below ground in what used to be the sea occupying most of today's Tuscany.

Wow, I'd love to see it when it's completely restored.

How in the world would this prove that?

Actually, it's evidence that the world was once mostly covered in shallow seas.. and that the land masses did indeed move around, pushing areas that were once covered in a shallow sea or other body of water upwards, or over. Like what's happening still.

Not that the earth was tilted.

oh i see. i just thought that the fossils of some sea creatures that have been found inland are former oceans.

skeleton of a 33-foot prehistoric whale

and i thought that shallow seas that dried up was impossible to contain animals these big.
