Pip stands beside a tonne of chocolate at the Philip Island chocolate factory. It reminds us of the time that Dr Tom Rich promised the first person to find evidence of a Cretaceous mammal a cubic metre of chocolate. At the time, of course, he did not know that any would be found and so had not actually figured out the procurement of delivery details (for those that don't know the story, Tom persuaded Cadbury later to provide enough chocolate to convince the diggers the debt had been paid). We are informed that the process of making a block of chocolate that big means that the chocolate itself is not particularly nice, but that might just be story to make us feel better about not breaking into it!
