I am a palaeontologist living and working in Alice Springs, in the red centre of Australia. I moved here with my wife and three kids from Johannesburg, South Africa. I used to focus my research on dinosaurs, and it is fair to say I am still a dino nut but these days I work on fossils from the NT, be they turtles, tassie tigers or anything else. In my spare time I like to watch birds, catch beetles, lizards and snakes and generally find out as much about the species around me as I can.
Given the great popularity of Darren Naish's guessing games and my complete immersion in paper writing right now, I'm going to do likewise. So here is a field photo from my archives. The specimen is now prepared. What do you think the fossil is?
