Hear students in the 2009 summer junior paleontology field camp describe what they love about searching for fossils at Rattlesnake Creek in Gainesville, Florida. In this camp, Florida Museum vertebrate paleontologist Art Poyer and University of Florida zoology Ph.D. recipient Larisa Grawe DeSantis teach students, ages 9-11, how to uncover prehistoric creatures that once roamed the area.
