Glenn Jepsen & Tilly Edinger

The Tilly-bat - by Dr. Glenn Jepsen This poem is unique in that it involves not one by three palaeontologists! Central to the poem is the founder of palaeoneurology and first female president of the Society of Vertebrate Palaeontology, Dr. Tilly Edinger. Possibly the nerdiest of all Palaeopoems, this one summarizes a friendly (and still unresolved) feud about a fossilized braincase and which extinct mammal it may have belonged to.
