This week, I took a big step in my new career as a scientist. That still feels not-right, being called a scientist.

In October 2012, I found a molar from Camelops huerfanensis, an extinct North American camel, at the Waco Mammoth Site. Soon after, it was put on display, where it has been ever since. This week, it got a little cleaning! My research partner and I will begin studying the teeth of all our animals here at the site. By scraping the plaque off teeth and looking for certain particles, we hope to learn exactly what these animals ate. Our first subject is the humble camel tooth I found. If we're successful, we'll move on to mammoths.

This was serious business, so of course I brought ponies. Stay tuned for adventures in the lab!

Bring ponies along for all serious science.

It is what Serious Scientists do.

(and if they deny it, bet they have an Admiral Ackbar figure in a drawer somewhere)
