BASILOSAUR (PRIMITIVE WHALE) FOSSILS FOR SALE
Basilosaurs are a family of extinct, primitive whales of the early to middle eocene. As whales early ancestors left the land in favor of the sea, it is likely that these were the first fully aquatic whale. Basilosaurs were first discovered along the US Gulf Coast but have since been found on every continent including Antarctica. The name Basilosaurus means King Lizard, a result of the first specimen being mistaken for a large reptile by its discoverer.
