Officially, Chris Flis is a site manager for The Woodlands Xploration Station, a satellite facility of The Houston Museum of Natural Science that houses more than 10 dinosaurs, an impressive collection of giant minerals, live bugs and much more - and he's a paleontologist at heart. He's been traveling to remote areas to find fossils since he was a kid, and has had the pleasure of digging into ancient history in Ireland, Nova Scotia, and England. His current research includes identifying and cataloging Eocene marine species present in fossil-bearing areas near College Station. With the Museum, he's dug extensively in Seymour, along with other pre-historic sites in Texas, as well as Kansas and the Morrison Formation in Wyoming. He's also an enthusiastic fossil photographer and many of his photos are featured in this blog.
