Re: Project Exploration comes home
Have been absent from the list for some time, but wanted to comment on
Paul Sereno and his team collected 20 tons of fossils during the four month
expedition, which should yield a number of announcements in the coming
months/years. Those who haven't as yet read the updates, go to:
for enthralling and detailed commentary and pictures.
It was great!! The website covers a lot of the stuff too, the "Real Deal"
is both entertaining and pitiful/frightening. One particular picture is of
an arachnid called a solifuge. When you put the cursor on the picture, the
word "no T.V." come up. We kept some gladiator solifuges and fed them for
entertainment in Gadoufoua.
Also, the Sun-Times article mentions 21 flat tires... Shyeah, in the first
two weeks. :)
Anyway, do check out the website if you have a chance. Also, check out our
nice little discovery at Camp 3 as mentioned in the Sun-Times article. I
won't say much, except I can hardly wait for that jacket to get opened.
Oh, one last thing. There are a few typos in the website, the worst for me
is a misquote from myself. For the record, I know that true bugs are
Hemiptera and not Hymenoptera. Our doctor thought he was doing me a favor
by transcribing my diagnosis of a bite. Too bad it made it on the website
as what he wrote rather than what I said...
Talk to you'uns later,
