STOP 'feeding' the ducks

STOP 'feeding' the ducks

Sorry for the silence here at Tet Zoo - Eotyrannus is keeping me busy, and no time for blog-writing. In desperation, I wanted to share this, originally posted on ver 2 in 2009.

Because giraffes are heartless creatures, and other musings

Those of you who read the recent Tet Zoo article on The Second International Workshop on Sauropod Biology and Gigantism may have been wondering about the odd picture I showed in one of the slides of my talk.

The Second International Workshop on the Biology of Sauropod Dinosaurs (part II)

An average day in the Mesozoic. This >definitely< happened! Illustration by Luis Rey. And the ornithodiran biology fest hasn’t stopped yet… I still need to finish up on the events of the sauropod biology workshop, the three-day meeting held in December 2011 at the University of Bonn, Germany.

Rigid Swimmer and the Cretaceous Ichthyosaur Revolution (part I)

You’re reading a blog. This almost guarantees the fact that you’re a staunch supporter, and fan, of open-access publishing. Many of us who publish technical research really do try to publish in open-access venues as often as possible.

In case you forget, softshell turtles are insanely weird

I wanted to use this photo because it’s weird and interesting, not because I have anything particularly insightful to say about softshell turtles. The animal shown here is a Florida softshell Apalone ferox that I photographed in captivity earlier in 2011.
