Things here at Tet Zoo will be quiet for a while since I'm preparing for, or away at, TetZooCon, the first ever Tetrapod Zoology-themed convention. Booking is now closed, but you can read about the schedule here.

We have a set of talks on diverse zoological topics (including herpetology, wildlife photography, vertebrate palaeontology, historical primatology, cryptozoology and speculative zoology) as well as an interactive palaeoart workshop, a quiz, a book sale and more.. hmm, I've said all this before, haven't I? Anyway... I leave you with screengrabs of a few slides from my speculative zoology talk.

Yup, Discovery's 'mermaids' in my TetZooCon talk, sorry about that... Images (c) Discovery.

I'll tell you how it went when it's all over. Follow livetweeting at #TetZooCon. For previous pieces on TetZooCon, and the thoughts of other bloggers, see...
