The next morning, Heather awoke and remembered her dream.
Were the bones part of one of the sea creatures she had dreamed about?
Could it be they had uncovered something so rare?


They packed up for another day at the river, and returned to the site of the discovery.

Mike photographed the bones. In a notebook he wrote down the location and described what the bones looked like.

This would help scientists identify the animal.

Mike and Heather continued to dig for more bones, and by late that day they had uncovered eleven more. Now they had twenty-three in all. Heather was certain about one thing this animal was incredibly long!

After studying the bones for several days, Mike decided to send some of them to a palaeontologist to have them identified.

He explained to Heather that a palaeontologist is a scientist who studies ancient life.
