Lab Update

We have several new interns from Martinsville High School working in the VP lab, and their efforts are already starting to pay off.

Logan Davis has been working this week on one of the first dinosaur bones collected from our Wyoming site. This is an anterior tail (caudal) vertebra from a diplodocid dinosaur, possibly Apatosaurus. The specimen was partially prepared several years ago but never completed, and Logan is now removing the remaining bits of sediment.

Whitney Armstrong and Bronwyn Hairston have been preparing Carmel Church material collected during our March 2007 excavation. One of the first things they found was a tooth from a lemon shark (Negaprion eurybathrodon). These are quite rare at Carmel Church; this is only the fifth specimen from this species that we’ve identified.
