If you’re curious about eroded, questionably diagnostic vertebral centra from the Middle Jurassic of England, you have come to the right place! Sorting out taxonomy is dull, difficult, thankless work of the sort that in other fields of human endeavor is usually farmed out to robots. But it’s also foundational stuff that really needs to be done right, which is probably why Adam got it all knocked out on the first day (the Garden of Eden must have had a depauperate fauna).
