I'm sad that the funding we were successfully granted has been revoked because I am going on maternity leave and apparently an extension to account for this is beyond the remit of the funders. It's hard to win funding, to have it taken away again after so much work is gutting 😭

I expanded my thoughts on the whole 'tomb' discussion in a little blog post, because twitter doesn't have enough space for all my thoughts on the subject.

Thx Bridget! I should clarify tho that the genera drawn/listed in the fig are those ID'ed in the Panga ya Saidi assemblage, not all genera theoretically possible to find in any E. African macromammalian assemblage. It's in the caption but JIC. Anyway it's a pretty diverse bunch!
