        For Pete's sake tell some local vert paleo type or at least 
volunteer to show someone on the net where the skin impression is. 
Those kind of fossils are priceless and someone interested could probably
do a careful search along the walls, rappelling if necessary, to find the 
rest of the remains and identify the dino that made the impression!
        If others on the dino group agree, encourage Bernie to respond.
