March of the Fossil Penguins

Fossil penguin discoveries and research

Penguin in Hand

Here is the end of the excavation.  The cutting in the rock is much larger than the fossil, but we need to keep some leeway in the form of rock around the bone, so none are damaged by removal or transportation.  The smaller opening is from another find, some fossil whale bones. Now, packed in burlap and cushioned by foam, the fossils will make the long journey back to the lab.
