A teenager from Alabama, a teacher finds a 34-million-year-old whale skull on a farm

An Alabama teen digging for fossils on her ranch stumbled upon a massive find: a 34-million-year-old whale skull.

Lindsey Stallworth, a student at the Alabama School of Mathematics and Science in Mobile, Alabama, has long been collecting fossils on her family’s farm, about 80 miles north of Mobile. In a press release from the school, Stallworth said she picked up fossil shark teeth and shells, “but we never knew anyone who could tell us anything about it.”

The 16-year-old brought some of her finds to her biology teacher, Drew Gentry, a paleontologist who has studied Alabama fossils since his childhood.
