Beumaris Giant Spermwhale by Bran-Artworks Beumaris Giant Spermwhale by Bran-Artworks
Una de esas noticias, que para los entusiastas de los cetáceos hacen el día, es el descubrimiento de un diente gigante (30cm de largo) en Beumaris, Australia, siendo bastante similar en forma y tamaño a los de Livyatan con el cual se piensa estaba emparentado pero con una diferencia significativa, este animal habría vivido hace 5 millones de años durante el Plioceno, indicando que los cachalotes depredadores gigantes estaban aún presentes. El tamaño de este animal ha sido estimado en 18m a pesar de no estar descrito formalmente; el que se muestra acá es altamente hipotético y más cercano a la menor estimación en tamaño para Livyatan.

One of those news that, for cetacean enthusiasts, made the day, is the discovery of giant tooth (30cm long) at Beumaris, Australia, that closely resemble Livyatan´s, both in size and shape and is thought to be a related form but with a significant difference is that this animal lived during the Pliocene epoch, around 5 million years ago indicating that giant predatory sperm whales were still present. The size of the animal has been estimated around 18m but hasnt formally described, so the animal depicted here is very hypothetic and closer to Livyatan lower size estimate...now, should l color this?

We will have to wait since there are no publication yet.

There is, however, a small time gap of around four million years in between Livyatan melvillei and the Beaumaris whale...

Apparently there are more remains of these Beumaris physeteroids that could reveal more, if not Livyatan melvillei, it could have been a species within the genus.

might it have been simply a smaller specimen of livyatan

its possible or another species within the genus, what is true is that other teeth almost as big as these are known from other parts of the world, if we already have two Acrophyseter species...likely with Livyatan.

It's probably 14 meters; Livyatan was 15.

Anyways, nice.

l think it size would range 13-15m but of course more solid evidence is needed.

Si el dienete medía más de 30 centimetros sería bastante razonable suponer que el animal mediría como mínimo 10 metros.

Nada mal considerando que el único Physteroide raptorial de una edad geologica comparable es Acrophyseter.

Es posible que estuviera en ese rango de tamaño,  y si ambos generos aparecen casi al mismo tiempo  aunque recuerdo que hay dientes de  cachalotes del grado scaldicetus hasta el pleistoceno aunque ya no serian para nada abundantes.

Oh yes, I saw the news about it yesterday, very interesting to know they were still around by then. 
Of course you should colour it.

Maybe I'll once give this one a try or another prehistoric whale. Just not in the near future ;) (Wink)

Así incluso con la menor estimación seguiría siendo muy respetable... además porque implica que las orcas aún no habían establecido del todo su predominio (y hasta encaja con la idea reciente de que el megalodonte se extinguió más por la competencia con otros depredadores que por el clima).

Si, las orcas aparecen un par de millones de años después y se piensa que aun O.citoniensis no habría tenido los hábitos de su pariente actual, también es importante porque implica que fueron bastante exitosas estas formas gigantes de cachalotes y no un experimento que se extinguió rápido.
