Fossil remains of a protowampus beast have recently been found in lower crust of Emerald Mountain while the excavation team were removing sand in the most recent phase of the dig. The skull is being saved for further examination by the team back at HQ.
This is an exciting discovery as the skull is the final missing piece to construct a nearly-complete skeleton of the prototypical ancestor of the Wampus beast.
Lead excavator Dr. Catte found pieces of the lumbar vertebrae in the sands of the Wind River back in June, which began a larger scale excavation and study of the surrounding areas.
Dr. Catte is a great nature lover, and she is giving considerable study to the nature of the fossil remains found on the south side of Emerald Mountain. She does not just throw them to one side.
Dr. Catte often makes the statement:
"You can't beat nature."
"Scientists are always talking about their wonderful discoveries but nature still has countless secrets that they have never learned," stated Dr. Catte recently.
We are hopeful that her sustained inquiry helps in a truer reconstruction of the Protowampus beast model for our zooarchaeological collection.
