Its fantastic to wake up on a Saturday afternoon (yes, afternoon), and realise that all I feel like doing is searching for journal articles about fossil crocodylians! I. duncani has beautifully articulated phalanges, but the metatarsals are completely disarticulated. I want to see if there are any similarities between the preservation of I. duncani and of other crocs, from all different depositional environments, among other things. Hoorah for Saturdays!
