Another Geological Haiku

This is the forelimb of Acanthostega gunnari, which is a beast Jenny has been working on for the past 20 years. As you can see, it had 8 digits. It also had 8 toes.

For those of you that are not computer specialists, counting to base 16 (instead of 10, which we normally do) is called hexadecimal.

Acanthostega
Worked in hexadecimal.
Polydactyl-ly.
