Holy smokes this thing just keeps getting better and better. To think, it's someone's "job" to work on this every day.

Yea I know what you mean.  But have to say that this skull makes up for all the other less rewarding jobs they see.  Still a pretty tedious task and everyone is looking over your shoulder.

Humerus has been prepped and came out in fantastic shape.   A very rare rex bone not many have been found

Wow! That is stunning preservation. There’s no composite or anything on it? That’s amazing!

That's so cool! Congrats to them :) Now that all the excavation is finished, all they have left is "just a little" workload of prep work and paper-writing.. Thanks for sharing these wonderful pictures!

The surangulars, prearticulars, and right articular from the Tufts-Love BurkeTrex. This is shaping up to be a well preserved and near complete skull.

A chance break through the left dentary exposed some interesting rooty business

Interesting minor asymmetries in the proximal nasal bones, frontals, and prefrontals of the Tufts-Love #BurkeTrex. The eyeballs are an artistic re-creation.
