Okie :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Where has the "funny post" smilie gone?

I saw the story and pictures in the Star newspaper and also heard about it on Radio 702. What an incredible find. It makes you wonder what else is out there.

They looked very cute, and amazingly intact and detailed. The tiny little bones.. wow. 8)
