Johnny Castillo, Volunteer Team Member

Johnny Castillo is a long-time volunteer with the Museum's paleontology department. He has dug mammalian fossils in Nebraska, spent three dig seasons working with the Museum on a Triceratops, and this is his fourth time digging with the team in Seymour. He's also dug in Stone City and High Island.
"I was no different than any other kid, I guess. The top three things I wanted to do was dig for dinosaurs, go into Egyptology - I thought it would be really neat to go to Egypt and dig for treasure - or drive an ice cream truck. Getting to eat all the ice cream you want - that's a big thing for a kid."
This week, Johnny is working on removing a plaster jacket full of Dimetrodon fin spines and vertebrae from the site, and looking for the bones that could be underneath.
