Happy Birthday to Mary Anning!

Born on May 21, 1799, in Lyme Regis, on the coast of Dorset, England, famed fossil-hunter Mary Anning grew up collecting specimens.
At age 13, she unearthed a skeleton of a giant marine reptile. While in her late 20s, she discovered Dimorphodon, the first pterosaur discovered outside continental Europe. At the time, headlines celebrated Mary and her “flying dragon.”

The most important thing that I’ve figured out is that things work out the way they’re supposed to. We try to have all this control and fashion things the way we want, but everything happens for a reason, and in the end it works out the way it’s supposed to.“
