dRemarks:
Rough measurements were made using a hand held tape measure, not a set of calipers. The above rough measurements pertain to the whole Flipper, not any one individual fossil bone. Additionally, the above rough measurements were made without removing the Flipper from Drawer 558, thus the measurement for Height is not applicable here.

CatRemarks:
There is a great possibility that this Flipper was originally articulated. A note card discovered along with the specimen in Drawer 558 indicates that a "Bad Flip" of the plaster jacket caused all of the the fossil material to spill out, and thus ruined whatever position the fossil was originally in. However, while the fossil material is loose, it is in a fair state of semi-articualtion in Drawer 558.
