We Found the Skull! YES!!!!

In 2004, Joe Brown, one of the CFDC volunteers, discovered a short-necked plesiosaur. Since then, the fossil crew has excavated close to 60% of the specimen and this year is our third season of excavating. A large amount of overburden and overlying rock needed to be removed, leaving us with some doubt as to wether or not there were still some remains awaiting us.

I'm glad to say that YES we found what appears to be the base of the skull from our plesiosaur Betsy. I'm now heading out with the fossil crew to continue the search... all we need to find are the flippers. I'll keep you posted over the next couple of days.
