Example text

The reason this lower plain is called by a different name and considered separate from the Two Medicine formation is that between the two formations is a dome, a bulge in the skin of the earth. Like a bubble in a viscous liquid coming to a boil, this bulge has been rising up intermittently since before the Cretaceous. It probably bulged most vigorously during times when the mountains were thrusting up. The result is that the middle of the plain we've been talking about is not preserved. Instead we find this bulge, known as the Sweetgrass Arch.

Clearly, the young had been eating for some time. Another way of interpreting fossils is to use the indirect evidence of the environment, the geological evidence on both the large and the small scale. Often concentrations of fossil bone are deceptive; one can be fooled into thinking that the animals found together in death were also together in life, when, for example, what really happened was that they all died near the same stream at different times and were carried by the flow of water to the same spot.

To identify dinosaurs one usually needs a very distinctive bone or set of bones, and the most distinctive set of bones you can find is the skull. I haven't mentioned it until now, but there was another fossil we brought back to Bob's backyard: a skull, and a telling one. The Brandvold family had found it. While we had been digging up the nest of baby bones, they had been attacking another nearby fossil deposit with pick and shovel. By the Brandvold family I mean Marion and her husband John, and David and Laurie Trexler.
