Spectacular that an important find was discovered by a woman interested in paleontology. This field has for too many years been dominated by men and I'm always glad when the fairer sex shows us they are equally capable of spotting and knowing the significance of a world-class find. Huzzah!









P.S.: I've always had a soft spot for Dimetrodon (even if they are more closely related to mammals than dinosaurs).
