Hurray - a mammal jaw at last!


After nearly two and a half weeks the first mammal jaw for the season turned up!
Found by our very lovely Jacqui Tumney, it is a handsome specimen with at least 7 teeth.
David Pickering (Museum Victoria's Collections Manager) thinks it could be an Ausktribosphenos nyktos. More will be revealed after further preparation at the Museum.
Well done Jacqui.

  1. It's beautiful and I'm jealous. Jacqui is very deserving, but I missed it!
