Fossil Friday!

This whole month, Fossil Friday is “fossil by request.” Want to see a pile o’ marsupial teeth? Want me to dig into the La Brea tar pits? Are you an ammonite addict? Your wish is my command!

The first requested fossil is coming from GrizzlyD, who asked for “some Mesozoic beasties.” Well. that gave me a lot of latitude, because the Mesozoic is huge! So I decided to start with a crowd-pleaser—a dino from the Jurassic. It’s obviously a lower jaw—but whose? And where was this fossil found?

A hint: being a real creeper, it had a cameo in Jurassic Park.

First person to identify it gets bragging rights for the week—and your choice of next week’s fossil!
