The end of the week came all too soon – it was time to go home. At Riversleigh, the palaeontologists bagged all their specimens.
And then put them in the 4WD’s to bring back to Adels Grove.
There, they put the bags on to palettes, which will eventually be taken back to Mt Isa, and then transported by train back to Sydney.
For them, it’s really just the beginning of their discoveries – the extraction, and then the identification and write up are all still ahead. They certainly have enough work to tide them over until next year’s trip to Riversleigh.
