Back to the past: in the cave again – #NTCave2017

I went back in the cave after three days on the surface. My, things had changed.


My day was spent looking at teeth. Here’s a carnassial tooth (for cutting meat) from a canid, like a wolf or coyote.


I spent most of the day looking at horse teeth.


In my tiny cave office.


Another exciting discovery was this Bison jaw. We wrapped it in a plaster jacket to protect it.


It was another lovely day in the cave.

(sideways)

We had lunch in the sunny-spot.


And I looked at a few cave formations.

(Hah! This one is upside down!)

And took a moment to view the cave from a different perspective.


Back into the cave tomorrow. I wonder what we’ll find?
