The underside too?

So in last weeks excavation we found and exposed more of the turtles shell! Another exciting find with this is the possibility of a plastron, the underside of the turtle shell that is a bit like a breastplate! A femur or humerus may also be present, but the sediment covering it and my lack in experience with turtles leaves it up to question for now. Let me know what you think of the fossil and if there is anything else you want to see from the lab!
