Abstract

In Montopoli in Val d’Arno (Pisa Province), where was also found the Idiocetus guicciardinii holotype kept in Florence, is the “Museo Civico di Palazzo Guicciardini” whose paleontological section exhibits a Pliocene specimen of right whale (Eubalaena sp.). This fragmentary remain, found in the Montopoli area in 1974-75 by a local archaeological group, is presented as it was in its outcropping place, together with mollusc shells and mastodon bones. Interesting the white shark tooth found nearby the whale bones suggesting a possible attack or scavenging by the predator.
