The pain of not getting cited: oversight, laziness, or malice?

The pain of not getting cited: oversight, laziness, or malice?

Its time to republish this classic article from Tet Zoo ver 2 (originally published in September 2009). The problem Im concerned with certainly hasnt gone away, and in fact is on my mind right now since Ive seen a couple of recent, egregious examples.

Australia, land of dragons (part II)

Australia, land of dragons (part II)

Time for more Australian agamids, or amphibolurines, or dragons, whichever you prefer. Last time round, we looked at the water dragons, Moloch and a few other taxa, meaning that all thats left to get through is the remainder.

Homage to The Velvet Claw, again

Homage to The Velvet Claw, again

At long last, somebody has uploaded (at least some of) The Velvet Claw to youtube. Whats The Velvet Claw, I hear you ask? Well, actually, I probably dont hear you ask, seeing as you probably know already.

Cant get me enough of that sweet, sweet Temnodontosaurus

One of my favourite ichthyosaurs is the generally large, archaic, long-snouted Temnodontosaurus, and if you have an especially good memory youll recall it being mentioned here and there on Tet Zoo over the years (see links below).

Grassland earless dragons

Grassland earless dragons

Today: LIZARDS. Even better: obscure Australian agamids, or dragon lizards, or dragons, if you prefer. Ive written about agamids a few times on Tet Zoo but have never gotten to say much (if anything) about the Australian radiation, grouped together into the clade Amphibolurinae.

Of vole plagues and hip glands

Of vole plagues and hip glands

Youll already know what voles are. Theyre blunt-nosed, comparatively short-tailed rodents with chunky bodies and rounded ears that are mostly concealed by fur.
