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.
Yes, another round of 'what is it?' I'm off on leave for a week. I hope I can post something in the during this time but in case I don't have a go at guessing the identity of this osteal orifice. Clue: it has nothing to do with any sort of sauropodomorph (for once). Oh the scale bar represents 2 cm.
