basilosaurus cetoides

Tastemaker gold badge
created by: Johannes Emily Hall
The state fossil of Mississippi and Alabama and first discovered in Louisiana, this creature brings to mind a classic Southern beverage, the classy and traditional sweet peach tea. Drink it iced as you sit on your porch admiring the orchards. Hey, maybe that rocking chair you're sitting on is actually made of ancient whale bones.

Reaching lengths of almost 70 feet, Basilosaurus (meaning 'King lizard') was the largest Eocene mammal. Originally thought to be a reptile, it was very elongated and had a vestigal back limb. It was carnivorous, and fed on fish, sharks and possibly other whales. Although the animal was not named until 1839, in the early 1800s, B. cetoides fossils were so common that they were regularly used as furniture, usually as andirons, in the American South.
