It's been a long time since I shared some finds- this is a really nice Dimetrodon caudal (tail) vertebra from a medium size ddon. The short, blade-like neural spine is the tell for position. Newest project for us is prepping a 12 foot by 6 foot block containing remains of at least 6 Dimetrodons. Hoping to get it into the lab by April... will start posting photos soon.

 

Best,

Chris

Congrat...Block with multiple specimens is very exciting and challenging.  Plan to extract them or leave them in-situ.  Good luck.

Cool looking vert! Love to see that prepped. Congratulations and thanks for posting it. I missed your contributions from the Texas Permian. Always anxious to see more.

We are planning on prepping all specimens in place to preserve the taphonomical data, among other aspects. After flipping the block in the field, it will be about 4 feet thick comprising 4 bone layers. Prepping from bottom to top, all the surprises in between will be removed as we prep down to the target layer.
