New Fossil Discovery - “Olive” A Primitive Horse Ancestor From The Green River Formation

by Matt Heaton

In the spring of 2015 the Eocene aged Green River Formation near Kemmerer, Wyoming yielded another amazing fossil discovery.  A fully articulated primitive horse ancestor, since nicknamed “Olive”, was found by brothers Mark and Mike Oliver.  While this locality is known world wide for it’s amazingly preserved fish fossils, they immediately knew they had discovered something very different and special.  Their first move was to call in expert help.

Jason Cooper (who recently discovered “Elvis”, the first complete Torvosaurus), along with Brock Sisson of Dinosaur Dynasty were able to lend a hand.  They share over 30 years to experience discovering, excavating and preparing a broad range of fossils.  While the Olivers knew they had something special they didn’t immediately know what it was.  Jason and Brock were able to quickly determine that they had discovered a primitive horse ancestor, only the second one EVER found in the Green River Formation…

That Time I Did A Read Along

That Time I Did A Read Along

Remember that time I did a read along for the Elementals Series by Brigid Kemmerer on Tumblr?       Yeah. So do I. It was intense… There is actually a reason why I don’t typically do read-alongs or read-a-thons or what ever they end up being called. And that reason is pretty simple actually – I get obsessed. Especially if its a compelling book series. Which, I will fully admit, The Elementals…

Elemental series

buttermybooks, I finally finished it (minus the novellas). Literally, just closed Sacrifice. I’ve got a bunch of feelings about the series as a whole - and not all of them good. But a lot of them good. But some of them very, very bad. I plan to do a review… Type or video, I have not decided yet. But THANK YOU SO MUCH for hosting the readalong with the-book-ferret because I would never have found the series otherwise and I am glad I read it. 😘
