Dino Dig 2014: Days 13-14

Some of our crew members celebrate after the successful flip of a 600 lb. jacket containing the skull of Maddie the triceratops. We were able to trim the jacket down to half that size for transport later. From left to right: Dr. Thomas Carr, Marilyn Laframboise, Kevin Aulenback, Leila Boujnane, Dr. Megan Seitz, Eric Olvera, Isaac Krone, and Katie Kirby.

After two amazing weeks in Montana, the 2014 dino excavation field season has now come to a close! We successfully collected fossils ranging from triceratops and hadrosaurs to tyrannosaurids and turtles. Although we are done collecting for the year, there is much work left to do in the fossil prep lab. Dr. Megan Seitz will be busy preparing our specimens at the Carthage Institute of Paleontology on the lower level of the Dinosaur Discovery Museum in Kenosha, WI. Come check out the museum to see what we brought back (no excuses – it’s free admission)!
