Fossil of extinct whale found

Fossil of extinct whale found [PHOTO], Researchers diving off the coast of Georgia may have found the remains of an Atlantic gray whale, a relic of a population that was hunted to extinction by the 18th century.

But this particular specimen died long before whalers became a threat.

Carbon dating showed that the fossil, a left jawbone, is about 36,000 years old. Go here for more including a photo.
