It’s not all skulls and glamour. Sometimes it’s slow removal of rock with little to show for it. And it’s sure not all pretty, either. Here are a few articulated vertebra that showed up the other day. I’m still not sure what part of the backbone it comes from. As the experts who look over my shoulder always say, “Scott, we need to see more.”
Come visit us at Thanksgiving Point, Museum of Ancient Life. Here’s my view from the block last week. Soon I hope to have another microscope set up by that window showing the prep of the things removed from the main block.
