Basilosaurus 130mm F3247
For years fossil mammal bones from the Pleistocene (part of the Neogene period) are fished from the bottom of the Northsea. These fossil bones are also known from the Westerschelde and the large rivers in The Netherlands.
The Northsea is a major supplier of mammoth bones (after Siberia). Most of the museum collections of mammal bones in The Netherlands came from the Northsea. Most fossil are fished up with fishnets (by accident) near the Deep Water Channel.
