First the Burgess Shale, now a beautifully preserved Tyrannosaurus skull. You really are ticking off every item in my paleo-stuff-to-see bucket list ;)

Seriously, that's a truly great experience - thanks for showing us!

Long before he helped find that T. rex, Jason Love discovered the world's youngest specimen of the early pinniped Enaliarctos (Astoria Fm., Oregon) and donated it to the Burke Museum, and donated some money which helped kick start a whole series of student research travel grants to work on the long-neglected marine mammal collection at UWBM. Jason's contributions have been quite critical in that regard and have resulted in about a half dozen new papers by students/early career paleontologists since 2016. We published the specimen that kicked all of this off back in 2017: https://www.app.pan.pl/archive/published/app63/app003992017.pdf
