I have one blog-themed job to do for the year, and it’s to wish you all a happy Christmas and a great New Year. Here’s one version of the 2017 Tet Zoo Christmas card - those of you with exceptional memories might recognise bits of it from the Christmas cards of previous years (some newly colourised). I’d ask you to identify the animals (or say interesting things about them) but - oh yeah - THE COMMENTS AREN’T WORKING. Sigh. Anyway...

And here’s a differently formatted one (designed for use in a twitter banner: I’m @TetZoo), featuring some additional beasts. Yeah, maybe this is all a bit weird, but you know how it is.

A vast amount of things are due to happen as goes Tet Zoo in 2018, it should be a fun ride. I’ll provide a review of 2017 during late January, but things to look forward to in 2018 include Dinosaurs In The Wild coming to London (book tickets here), the publication of assorted technical work on pterosaurs, tyrannosauroids, ichthyosaurs and more, the revival of the podcats (we’ve been on hiatus for good reason), the first ever multi-day TetZooCon, assorted conference-, fieldwork-, TV- and book-related shenanigans, and on-going Big Book progress at patreon (THANK YOU to those who have supported and helped!). Have a great Christmas and New Year!
