It was another wonderful, yet exhausting day in the cave.
One of the first things that happened was the collection of a pelvis belonging most likely to a Bison.
Then we set about digging as always. I went back to where much of a North American cheetah had been found and began quarrying. Naturally, we found things.
And, my best find of the day: A cheetah jaw fragment with a first molar preserved.
It took quite a bit of work to collect these fossils. Some were buried under very large rocks.
But mostly we just sat and carefully moved sediment, which is chilly work in a cave at 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
But it’s totally worth it. I’ll be back in the cave tomorrow. Got lots more work to do!
