FOSSIL JAW OF SEA TURTLE

15 million years old

Lee Creek Mine, Aurora,
North Carolina, USA


The Lee Creek phosphate mine in North Carolina is famous throughout the world for its shark, fish and whale fossils, which date from the Miocene period. Some whale bones have teeth marks attributed to the giant shark Carcharocles megalodon.

This is the lower jaw (dentary) of a sea turtle that lived in the warm Miocene sea, alongside the sharks and whales. It is from an old collection and is thought to have been collected in the 1980s.
