In tandem with the phytosaur prep, I’ve also started a very challenging bison skull project. This specimen is sub-fossil bone and VERY soft. The bone inside the foils wrapping is a crumbling mess. First step was to wrap it in towels and let it dry for a week.
At my main fossil site, soft fossil driftwood is pretty common, buried in cretaceous mud. It is full clam borings. Some of it looks great when first dug up, even with the bark still on it. Unfortunately, as it dries it crumbles to fragments. I think it is full of pyrite. Does anyone know how to preserve wood like this?
