This 12-page paper with over 20 color photos of fossils shares Independent Research on fossils found from March – August 2009 on private property in Glen Rose, Texas by the Dinosaur Valley State Park. Available as a PDF download online or pick up a color print from Cha in the gallery!
This article describes my findings on three major fossils; the “Rosetta Stone” of embryos, a T-Rex Embryo and a “Ruptured” Embryo. I found and photographed these fossils myself. I cleaned, oiled and waxed them myself. The observations, interpretations, and conclusions are mine alone. The people in Glen Rose say their fossil formation is 113 million years old.
Two umbilical cords extend from the mouths of the embryos. They twine around their bodies and connect to a “placental mass” (or yolk) which forms beneath the feet and behind the creature’s body. One is incoming and the other is outgoing. My conclusion is when the “placental mass” is diminished the creature is fully developed. He bites through the umbilical cords and with his claws and sharp teeth, he make his exit through a thick membrane and then through the soft outer shell.
I want to document my findings while I still have the fossils. They are for sale here in my gallery. If they go into a private collection, Science will have a great loss. Hopefully, some large company will buy them and donate them to a Scientific Institution that has the equipment
