Aug%2029.jpg Today, John joined Dave at the Tarbosaur quarry to measure a section and collect more carbonate samples. Louis, Derek and I went off to prospect for sites with small fossils of turtle, fish, mammals and other critters.

While Louis and Derek scoured the hillside, I came across a threopod track preserved on the underside of a sandstone layer.

The three of us traveled to a locality with bone exposed on the surface that John and Derek had discovered their first week at Bugin Tsav. They turn out to be just isolated bones. While searching the area, I collected a small ornithopod track and what turns out to be most of the right and left forelimbs and some vertebrae of a Gallimimus.
