|The orange sand layer is at the top|
This day I was assigned a different square, in the orange sand layer. On the edge, going into the wall, is thought to be another limb bone of a gomphothere. This was to be another day of not many pictures because I kept getting my hands dirty. As I dug this square, I kept finding what I think are bits of turtle shell. Sadly, they are broken and scattered. I kept probing to see if I could find the extent of the shell, but the whole square had pieces.

We water the surface to make it easier to dig.
What was fun though, as I found some toe bones of varying sizes (1 to 2 cm). And the best I found was a very fragile bone that I don't know to what it belongs. My first guess is a scapula, but whose? An alligator? A big turtle?
And Rachel found a crab - yay invertebrates!!!!
I've also been doing some photogrammetry of finds in the quarry. Check out:
