Our paleontology team – led by Dr. Robert Bakker – is back in Seymour, TX this week, digging for Dimetrodon at a site they’ve now been working for several years. (You can read more of what’s been found already in our daily blog from the field in 2007).
Today’s update comes David Temple – our associate curator of paleontology and a one of our BEYONDbones bloggers. They’re wrapping up the dig, and he fills us in on the progress from yesterday, as well as what’s in store for the team today.
They’ll finish jacketing and removing as many fossils as they can from the site, and prepare what’s left to be sheltered until they return. They face two challenges: limited time and a paleontologist’s worst nightmare: rain.
