One of my photos is going to grace the walls of the Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas, Texas. The shot is one of limpet scars on the rocks at Point Lobos.
The image will be used in the “Ocean Life in Dallas” section as an example of modern limpet scars. Limpet scars are one hypothesis for the holes found in sea turtle shells from the Mesozoic.
The other hypothesis is that the holes are the result of the bite of a mosasaur, a large, carnivorous sea-reptile.
If I were a gambling man, I would bet on the mosasaur.
Anyway, it is going to be a “permanent exhibit” and should be around for a few years. So, if you are in Dallas, as Joe Bob would say, “check it out”.
