Turtle fossil

The “dinosaur exhibit” -- as everybody calls it, although it’s much more than that -- in the newly reopened fossil hall at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History is fascinating. We finally got to see it after waiting six months for the crowds to die down (which they hadn’t, really).

Part of an incredibly long tail of one of the dinosaurs managed to get into the picture.

Best to view in "Original" because other versions resized by Pbase are decidedly unsharp.

Uh, Merry Christmas? posted earlier:
