Are there any more opportunities for students to test body size using different sets of associated dentitions? I remember seeing the associated dentition at the Aurora Fossil Museum. I wonder a couple things — a) are there more sets of associated dentitions that can be scanned and 3D printed so students can measure them? and b) are the associated dentitions that museums/collectors have on display actually associated–how do we know? Although these are just my wonderings, I think it could be a good question to get students thinking about the science of paleontology too. @lcone, do you think that the associated dentition at the Aurora Fossil Museum could be scanned for students to measure body size?
