We Found Something: A Real New Mexico Story

It appeared to be a dinosaur. While hanging out at our favorite part of the lake we noticed some odd formations. Upon closer inspection we found a skull, spine and maybe a really long tail. We decided to call it into the park service and let them check it out. In 1995 a T-Rex jaw had been found near this area. It is rumored that Elephant Butte Lake had once been a hunting ground for the T-Rex. The ranger who came to the call was calling it in to Santa Fe, to a department that handles these things. We'll check in with him tomorrow to find out what exactly it is. More soon. .  .

The ranger welcomed us to check in tomorrow and find out what happened. Of course we could go back and revisit the spot. We'll post again with the results. I just loaded some more pics.

Cool. A bone test is to lick the end of the suspected bone and if it sticks to your tongue, it's bone.

Wow, how exciting! Keep us updated!

Dean, I did the lick test (yes I kept a piece!) and it stuck! It's bone.

Wow! Knowing you, Wendy, it's probably some transitional species never before identified ;)
