Dinosaur skin impressions!

I was doing some routine fossil preparation work in the Paleontology & Geology Research Lab on Nancy, a relatively complete duck-billed dinosaur from the Hell Creek formation of eastern Montana, when – to my surprise – I uncovered some skin impressions! Have a look for yourselves:

The pebbly textured area is a patch of skin!

Who knows what might turn up tomorrow?
