Every trip to the ocean shows a different face to nature. This weekend I found this rather bone like item that had washed up along the shore in low tide. I sent it into MARS - Marine Animal Response Society of Nova Scotia, and it appears it may be a Basking Shark bone. It is quite interesting indeed at 20" long along the outer curve. I am always amazed at how and what the ocean brings to land upon the shoreline. While this is interesting, it is also a bit sad to see as it once was part of a living mammal.
