Epic 3D Printing jobs - part 1
I haven't had too much new in preparing actual bones lately - ribs, gastralia pieces, centrums and neural arches. All well known stuff, even somewhat boring. No limb, skull or unusual bones at all. Several large blocks have been pretty barren of bones, so t...

tiny bones in the rocks
When I was much younger I was lucky enough to see Don Ho in Honolulu in his Waikiki stage show. His favorite song was 'tiny bubbles' ( Tiny bubbles (tiny bubbles) In the wine (in the wine) Make me happy (make me happy) Make me feel fine (make me feel fine)....

Bones, Bones - Lots of Bones
I'm doing a project that is giving me perspective on how much we have accomplished in the past 5 years. I have decided to print out a reference set of all the bones I have prepared so far. In fact, I have decided to print out 3 sets - one for myself, one fo...

Just more backbones - as if we don't have enough of them!
Just a quick note to tell all you folks about more backbones that I've prepared. Sometimes the backbones cluster together - must be something about how the water currents & waves sorted items of similar density and shape together. Anyway, I have been workin...

Three items to report: ilium, lots of backbones, and a 3D printing project! I have prepared yet another ilium - I think that is about 7 in total that we have found. Most all are different sizes from the different animals. The ilium is one of the three types...

I just finished 4 more bones and sent them off to Alaska. Last post I presented a very unusual bone that I think is part of a mandible. This time I have two more unknown bones and a quadrate, the link bone between the mandible and the skull. All of these bo...

Once more, into the Unknown
Finding new types of bones is getting very rare. After all, I have excavated over 250 bones by now, and these animals don't have that many types of bones. They do have a lot of bones, but most are ribs, gastralia, centrums and neural arches (backbones to us...

One Melange, please, with a side of Skull
Things have been really slow this month. I have a piece of matrix that is very loaded with bones and shells. They are so close together that I can't seem to get anything out!  By my count I have 4 simple centrums, 2 more centrums with attached neural proces...

Ptergyoid, my Ptergyoid
Ptergyoids are really gnarly bones, part of the skull making up the hard palate, stretching from the front part of the snout back to the brain case. We already had one, found unrecognized and scanned as two separate bones. I probably broke it handling it an...
