Hargai site: Piecing Together. Cases carrying the precious fossils were transported there on camel-back. Jean Loup Welcomme, Laurent Marivaux and Grégoire Métais unwrap the most recognizable bones first. For the next three days, under the gaze of the incredulous Bugti warriors, the team attempts to piece together the gigantic puzzle made up of bones 30 million-years old. Due to erosion and fragmentation, the bones have lost many of their identifying qualities. The assembly of the skeleton requires a complete and precise knowledge of anatomy. To better understand the morphology of Baluchitherium, the scientists traced a white plaster outline around the skeleton. A 5-meter high tower of bamboo is erected to help visualize its size. Finally, a meter-long bamboo rod (painted white), placed along the skeleton acts as a scale.
