Nothing to excuse! The 'dentary' is the front part of the lower jaw. The 'maxilla' is the front part of the upper jaw. -- George

Thanks much. There were other faint bite marks on some vertebrae and ribs, probably from scavenging sharks, but the ones on the scapula were very nice. -- George

Incredible find! Thanks as well for the detailed photo documentation from the field and into the lab, as that tells a great story of the long process!
