May 6 1999: The teeth are prepared

Øyvind Enger, janitor at the Paleontological Museum, Oslo, is the project’s tooth specialist. He prepared specimens at night. The dentine is so fragile and the enamel so thin that this is the most exacting task of the whole project. One morning, at 3am, Enger used too much superglue on a tooth and glued his hand to the maxilla! He was stuck to a precious bone weighing about 6 kilos. He considered sleeping until help came. However he managed to use a debonder and could go home.
