Crikey, you must be busy indeed if you can't find time to post a picture!

Good luck with your studies, I'm sure we will all look forward to reading a palaeontology paper by you one of these days. See you on the sunny side!

Hey Phil
My palaeontological paper is all about the 2nd ever find of a cave bear fossil in east anglia. Its about a cave bear claw i just lately found.

Well done indeed! Please let us know when it is published. How old is it, I guess 400,000?

Hey Phil
No not that old lol. Its 150,000 years old from the upper pleistocene. Plus remember cave bears were very very rare as they went exstinct in the upper pleistocene in england.

did they never leave their caves then ? Extant bears use caves but are just called "bears". Would a cave bear exhibit cave dwelling traits such as lack of pigment & blindness ?
