Re: on being a paleontologist

One question I have wondered about recently about being a paleontologist
is doesn't it get depressing after awhile? After all you are studying
species that for the most part are no longer around! Isn't dealing with
extinction/ extinct species depressing?

Studying Tasmanian tigers is certainly depressing. But somewhere around the cave bear that stops. :-)
