VMNH paleo is out at the Carmel Church Quarry this week, excavating some roughly 14 million year old fossil sharks, whales and fish! Great first day! We're continuing excavation of a whale skeleton (in plaster from previous dig) that's coming along nicely. Roanoke College student Jenna Novosel even found the leg of a camel or horse (super rare!). Be sure to check us out at 10am Wednesday when we go live from the dig!
