Whale or dolphin?

Post by YvonneB » 31 Jan 2013, 17:54

Had a walk along the beach at Askernish this afternoon and found this, i think it's a whale or dolphin bone - is anyone able to identify which species it's from?

I recently found a cetacean ear bone, probably dolphin, and struggled to find any information at all on cetacean bones.
You could try ISpot ( or Wild About Britain (
