Some more photos from fieldwork in Caldera.
As it happens in our field jaunts, fossil finds come in twos. Carolina and I found nice shark teeth steps apart from one another at a nice locality that has been termed Los Negros. (Jim Parham and I had a similar moment in 2011, same stratigraphic unit). Some the material described in Valenzuela-Toro et al. was collected from this part of the Bahia Inglesa Formation.

A marine mammal rib fragment (maybe a cetacean, maybe something else), with wonderful shark tooth marks criss-crossing through the bone surface. Such teeth marks have been described before elsewhere in the world, although they were likely postmortem, and not the coup-de-grâce for its owner. (Photo: NDP)
End of the day, long afternoon light during the austral wintertime. Things got goofy and we went to go grab a coffee at Casa Tornini. (Photo: NDP)
