 This is my entry for May 2018.  Found on 23 May, prepped on 24 May.  Alligator jaw from the Wasatch Fm. at Patrick Draw. Years ago I would have called it Allognathosuchus, but Chris Brochu has renamed most Eocene crocodilians from around here and I would have to look it up.

Awesome find!

I really do appreciate the effort you put into prepping this tiny yet perfect jaw.

This thing was super hard to prepare. The matrix was almost the exact same hardness as many of the fossils. It was painstaking. I'm so glad to be done with it. 

 

EDIT: Inserted images from external links.

There's going to be a slight delay getting this month's polling threads up. They should be done sometime tomorrow.
