Professor Derek was excited. He and his archaeology students had been working for months, tediously sifting sand and excavating a small site deep within a rock outcropping in Eastern Texas. It was a Clovis-period site and many interesting artifacts had been discovered.
the most fascinating discovery was what appeared to be a long extinct primative colony of large marsupials. Curiously, such marsupials had never before been documented in Texas but only in Australia. This made Derek believe he was on to a completely new species, native to and exclusively represented only in Eastern Texas.
The bones were a curious yellow color. When he first saw them Dereke said, 'I am curious .... yellow? Hmmm, that's odd'.
Anyway, the bones could only be kangaroos, and that was simply amazing, Derek thought. Yes indeed, if he played his cards right he might be able to garner for himself the plaudits of the entire archaeological community, and not only that, maybe even write a hit song about it, for discovering the yellow roos of Texas.
