This blog is about finding, preparing and displaying Oregon's oldest and most complete Ichthyosaur (Fish-Lizard). Along the way, I'll include thoughts about paleontology, life and death from a fossil viewpoint, fossil hunting as a hobby, and getting serious on the science end of things. The story started about 230 million years ago in the warm seas around semi-tropical islands and is still continuing in the Central-Oregon high desert and temperate metropolitan Willamette Valley. I hope you enjoy your visit.
Sincerely, Gregory Carr
