Box 13

Box 13

May 24, 2013

We opened our 9th Project 23 box last week! This one is part of deposit 13 and is located on the east side of the compound, being shaded by our La Brea Tar Pits Museum canopy. Many large vertebrate fossils were exposed at its surface, including the back of a saber-toothed cat skull, a saber-toothed cat cervical vertebra, dire wolf teeth, large bird bones, and large herbivore long bone fragments and teeth. A condor-sized humerus and juvenile horse tibia are among what has so far been excavated. Box 13 is another deposit packed with well preserved fossils!
