Late Cretaceous Animals of Romania's Haţeg Island--a More Complex View

Over the past several years, I and colleagues have aimed to improve our knowledge of the Late Cretaceous fauna of the Haţeg Island, a landmass that corresponds to modern-day Romania. This work is led by the Transylvanian Museum Society’s Mátyás Vremir and the University of Bucharest’s Zoltán Csiki-Sava and involves researchers based in the UK and USA as well as Romania. We’ve found a lot of new stuff in the field, much of it at localities discovered within recent years by Mátyás. Our work has involved azhdarchid pterosaurs (Vremir et al. 2013, 2015), archaic birds and related theropods (Dyke et al. 2012, Cau et al. 2015), turtles (Dyke et al. 2015), and there are in-prep projects on multituberculate mammals, crocodyliforms and lizards.

Are You A Mammal? Standardized Test

Hannah Bonner is an illustrator who is creating an empire of informative, entertaining kids’ books about paleontology. They remind me of The Magic School Bus series by Joanna Cole: real science conveyed with a wacky sense of humor.
