Gray Fossil (Tapir) Site has a new web address
I've just had word from Martin Kohl, who discovered the first fossil bone at what is now known as the Gray Fossil Site in Tennessee, that his site's URL has changed. Please check out the new location: http://Graysite1.net/. There are pictures of fossil tapir skulls and excellent clear photos of the teeth, renderings of just how that many tapirs could have been caught in one pit, and other interesting scientific material on the site. The picture above is borrowed from the site with thanks. It shows the place that would become such a tremendous educational center on the day of the first fossil discovery. Martin Kohl's web site also gives a history of the dig and how it all got started. Many important discoveries have come from the Gray site including red pandas, turtles, and beautiful fossil plants.
