#adoptionday #fodr dodger got adopted today. Luna and I are going to miss him. I'm a bit teary-eyed.
Happy #FossilFriday , #RidgeFans ! Here's a lovely in-situ ("in place") #dinosaur bone from a sandstone member of the #MorrisonFormation , right here on #DinosaurRidge . This bone is shown in cross-section, so imagine that it's sticking out of the rock outcrop at a 90° angle. A few growth lines, or rings, are visible on the upper left side of the fossil, and the middle of the bone, now filled in with rock, used to house the spongy bone and bone marrow! We think this could be some sort of limb bone, but we can't say who it might have belonged to. Because the Morrison is #Jurassic -age, strong contenders include #Camarasaurus or another #sauropod , #Stegosaurus , or perhaps even an #Allosaurus . If you come visit us and make your way up to the #BoneQuarry , you will be able to see this fossil up close, and you'll even be able to touch it! Pretty neat 😊🤓

I have come to realize my forever struggle with loving the Forest of Drizzling Rain
