What’snot: A quick paleontology exam

The good news is that the Waco Mammoth Site in Texas has received National Monument status.

The bad news is that the monument may be opening too late for paleontology education in those parts.

Check the picture illustrating the article above. Then check its caption: “Not a Mammoth: Mastodon in Red River Museum. TE Photo.” Then check the photo again and write a 250-word essay on the subject of paleontology, taxonomy and photo captioning.
