Re: Where would you hunt dinos?
More preparators would *always* make a difference. Here in Australia
fossils are pulled out of the ground at a much faster rate than they
can be prepared, meaning that a decade might go by before an
important specimen is even recognised (let alone described).
Not just in Australia!!! Like several others of present company, I have
personally seen the unopened crates in the Bone Basement of the
natural-history museum in Berlin (not accessible to the general public).
Unopened crates from the Tendaguru expeditions, from before the _first_
world war. They're _not_ there for decoration.
