I've been looking for hesperornis fossils for a while, and recently, an acquaintance presented me with a challenge: He would send me a bag of broken up hesperornis verts for me to assemble. In return, I had to send him the biggest and best vert back. He also warned me it could be a real headache.

 

I took the challenge. Lo and behold! I was presented with over 60 broken pieces, some of which were tiny and terribly fragmented (not shown in picture)

Nonetheless, I googled for pictures of hesperornis verts and put what limited knowledge I had on fossil assembly into this task.

 

After 18 hours, this is what I got:

All in all, it was a tiring but satisfying job and now I can happily say I am the proud owner of a chain of associated hesperornis verts

Great job, Andy! Anything from Hesperornis is cool IMO - and you scored something quite nice :D 

If only my friends could send me challenges like that....
