Picture of the Day - Mr. Bones Goes To Tucson

While doing a little walking around the 59th Annual Tucson Gem & Mineral Show yesterday I encountered a giant 14-foot long fish on the show floor that was passing out business cards detailing that he (or perhaps it was a she) is a skeletal Cockerellites liops extinct Eocene fish from British Columbia. The skeletal fish appeared to have devoured a man named Tim Seeber who is a well-known fossil puppeteer known as Mr. Bones. At one point during "Kid's Day" this morning the swarm of children in and around our booth suddenly disappeared when the Cockerellites liops appeared nearby. We should have payed him to hang out in the Rocks & Relics booth during that time. Photo by Kim Patrick Noyes (all rights reserved)
