Dry Dredgers Field Trip
University of Chicago Paleontology Dept.
March 15, 2003

We had a great time at the University of Chicago. George Woosey from Chicago met us at the museum and we received a red carpet treatment. Wendy Taylor gave us a fantastic tour of Paul Sereno's personal preparation lab. There were 3 undiscribed dinosaurs in various stages of preparation!!! They were so important we were not allowed photographs. We also got to see the actual skull of the super croc (not a cast), one of only 2 T-rex arms and a chinese dinosaur with possible feathers. The National Geographic Society had just left after spending all week photographing the new dinosaurs. What an exciting trip!!
