A recent article on from National Geographic describes how an Italian stonecutting company (which makes countertops) was slicing through a piece of Egyptian limestone when they came across the fossilized bone of an Eocene whale embedded inside. Additionally, after palaeontologists traced the origin of the rock back to the quarry, they also found another layer above the limestone containing a cornucopia of smaller mammal fossils. My only thought at the video clip was that the next time we need to move overburden, we should rent an earthmover like the one they’re using.
Mommy, there’s a whale in the kitchen (literally)!
