3-D models of micro-CT scanned of fossil frogs in gel caps from Pleistocene sites in Queensland, Australia. Many of the specimens here represent new species being described by researchers. Stacking fossils like this in gel caps allows us to scan them in three dimensions, using x-rays, where we build 3-D models of each bone. This allows fast assessment of the diversity of species through geological time and geographical place (palaeobiogeography). To do this work we need to rapidly scan dozens of tiny fossilised bones from the frogs, focusing on the pelvis (ilium).
