There’s a shell!
Back in the lab again this week with Several volunteers. Work began again on the fossil turtle, which has produced a shell! So far the shell looks fairly complete, and is the outline of it can be seen in the pictures below. A limb element seems to be sitting on top of the mass, so there is hope for more bone in there as well. This is the first turtle I have worked on and it’s really starting to get exciting! If you have any questions, comment below!
