Catch-up at the MSC

On Saturday a bunch of diggers gathered at the Monash Science to catch up on what we'd been up since February.  Of course, we massively overcatered and didn't have nearly enough time to talk to everyone we meant to!  Thanks to John and Corrie for pulling this together.

Dino Diggers & Sir David

Steve Morton took such a great photo that I simply had to share.  Here is Sir David Attenborough looking at our mammal jaw and surrounded by Dino Dreamers lucky enough to be invited to meet him at the Monash Science Centre.  A big thanks to Prof Pat Vickers-Rich and Dr Corrie Willams for including me amongst them.

'Coconut' shaped fossil gives clues to the origins of the pygmy right whale

Melbourne Museum palaeontologist Dr Erich Fitzgerald has discovered that a strange 'coconut' shaped fossil is possibly the first fossil evidence of the family Neobalaenidae, a family of whales which contains just one extant species, the pygmy right whale (Capera marginata).
