I’ve touched dinosaur poop on multiple occasions
I’ll be back soon with a real post. It’s hard writing a knitting blog when the only things you’re knitting are a secret. There’s only so much you can say about a thing you can’t talk about. But I can say this: 21 swatches to go! Progress is being made, thanks in part to the beginning of football season. Negative amounts of thanks go to the internet, with its cat videos and pretty pictures that suck up my time like Lindsay Lohan and a pile of cocaine. I would save so much time if I simply chucked my laptop in the bin.
In the meantime, here are some shots I took in the paleontology hall at my work. Enjoy!
Ichthyosaur – died while pregnant. If you look closely you can see the fossils of her babies inside her.
Glyptodon – think of it as an ancient armadillo.
Choked while eating another fish. Didn’t your mother tell you to take small bites?
Another trilobite – they come in many sizes and shapes
I like to think of trilobites as prehistoric cockroaches.
Mastodon, wooly mammoth, and a human skeleton
Saber-toothed tiger – for sure a distant relative of my kitties.
Probably my favorite piece in the entire museum – horseshoe crab. Can you see its tracks?
And finally, a coprolite, aka fossilized poop.
