I have been quiet of late, but am still interested in the Belgrade. Our student Aldo had his oral exams for his PhD yesterday. These are usually harrowing experiences. I brought in the Belgrade astragalus (see previous photos), and asked Aldo what it was. He said it was definitely a peccary! So, Chuck, we are on the right track.
In November I will be going to the Smithsonian to look at the fossil mammals from Belgrade (NB–Dave), with the intention of developing a small paper on these at some point. Linda–I’ll want to touch base with you about your members with Belgrade mammals.
I’m also hearing through the grapevine that there is some doubt about my age interpretation for the Belgrade mammals!
