This morning, the team headed out to the Aimee site, where they uncovered what looks to be an entire associated Dimetrodon skeleton. It started when Chris discovered the tip of a Dimetrodon fin spine on the surface, which led to an entire fin spine, which led to four more, and on and on and on...(video coming soon to a computer near you.)
They also excavated several other locations within the Aimee site; one with tiny fish scales and coprolites, and another with an enormous amount of Xenacanth cartilage, poison spines and teeth. With all this after this morning's surprising discovery about yesterday's finds, it was quite a day.
An unidentified amphibian jaw (next to an unidentified vertebra, at right), found at a lowest level of the Aimee site.
A piece of Xenacanthus spine found on the surface of the Amy site.
A Dimetrodon claw found at the Aimee site.
Technical difficulties are keeping us from posting photos tonight, but check back tomorrow - we're hoping to upload the video of today's excavation, along with photos and more updates.
UPDATE - photos and captions inserted above. We're still working on video.
