Our shareholders have been patient, but let's be honest: no one is impressed by a dinosaur anymore. Twenty years ago, de-extinction was right up there with magic. These days, kids look at a Stegosaurus like an elephant from the city zoo.

Name meaning: Byron’s lizard (after Byron Jaffe) Period: Late Cretaceous Family Group: Ornithopoda Diet: Plants Size: 5 feet 91.5m) long Fossil found: Mongolia 2000 This agile meat eater could only attack small animals because it was slight. It weighted only 11 pounds (5kg) and was about 17 inches (43cm) high. Its small, thin teeth were unlike the tick saw like teeth of its relatives, the troodontids. This limited Byronosaurus’s diet to soft-bodied animals, such as birds, small mammals, insects, and frogs. Its snout was long, like a wolfhound;, which helped protect its eyes during a fight.

Dinichthys terrelli aka “Dunkleosteus” 🕰 Frasnian-Famennian, 382–358 Ma 🌊 Alert! 🚨 Dunkleosteus is not a theropod 🚨 Dunkleosteus’ classmates include all other Placodermi 👨‍🎓 Dunkleosteus could grow up to 28.8ft (8.79m) long 🐠 Due to it being covered in armor, it was a slow but powerful swimmer 💪 His jaw had large plates instead of teeth 🦷 He was also a suction feeder 🌬 Pulling in his prey by opening and closing his in a record speed of 60 milliseconds ⏱ It is speculated that his favorite places to swim are by the land (inshore waters)🏝 He grew up fast too‼️ Juveniles had almost as much bite force as adults 💪 #dinosaur #dinosaurs #dino #dinos #dinosaurmemes #paleontology #knowledge #triassic #jurassic #cretaceous #info #information #learn #think #knowledgeispower #knowledgeispower📚 #thinkingcap #themoreyouknow🌈 #dinosaurparty #dinosaurart #dinosaurcollection #dinosaursarecool #dinosaurskeleton #dinosaurfossil #dinosaurfossils #dinosaurcake #dinosaurdrawing #dinosaurmuseum #dinosaurisland

Well, the rainy season has arrived in Florida. This means the 2019-2020 Fossil Hunting Season is over. Stick a fork in it, it's done . Some highlights . Found - rare Pleistocene raccoon skull, megalodon tooth, giant ground sloth phalanx, and a new (to me) hunting spot . Brought my grandson on two trips and he loved it. Gonna make a river rat out of him. He's fearless . Tina took a ton of awesome photos, documenting this season much better than I usually do Managed 9 trips between Oct 2019 to May 2020. Paddled and hiked many miles and dug too many holes to count. Looking forward to doing it again next season.

What am I? These teeth belong to a ravenous carnivore... . . . They use these trident shaped teeth to tear apart penguins, small pinnipeds and sieve thousands of krill. . . . At a possible 3.5 metres in length, I am one of the top predators in the southern oceans (second only to the orca)...

Happy #FossilFriday everyone!! 🤠🦴⛏ When researching the birth of American #paleontology, certain names come up a lot. President Thomas Jefferson, the naturalist Georges #Cuvier and Benjamin Franklin just to name a few. While these names routinely get the credit of being the ones to “found” paleontology in the New World, the people who made these discoveries are routinely relegated to #footnotes, downplayed, or not even mentioned. To find the first recorded identification of a fossil on #American soil, we’re traveling to the Stono #plantation in 1725. While being forced to dig in the local swamp, enslaved Africans unearthed several odd, but familiar objects. Upon closer inspection, they recognized them as giant #teeth. However, these were not teeth one would expect to find in a South Carolina marsh but rather from an #animal native to their homeland. They unanimously recognized them as coming from an #elephant. The white slavers discredited their identification and proclaimed the teeth to be the remains of giants killed by the biblical flood. Eventually, word of the discovery made it to Cuvier who was developing his theory of #extinction and would later be referred to as the “founding father of paleontology”. The teeth would eventually be determined to come from the Colombian #Mammoth that would become South Carolina’s state #fossil in 2014. Besides cursory mentions, the enslaved #Africans receive little credit for their discovery and any that was given was patronizing with Cuvier reportedly being “impressed” with the correct identification. In 1925, when writing “The Beginnings of Vertebrate Paleontology in North America”, George Gaylord Simpson declared that the 1739 discovery of mastodon #bones on the Ohio River by Baron Charles Le Moyne “may be considered the [first] true discovery in this historical sense” and only referring to the mammoth teeth correctly identified by the Africans at Stono as “a few casual finds” that “cannot be called scientific discoveries”. Unlike many things I discuss on here, #racism isn’t #extinct. #BlPOCs remain underrepresented in paleontology. It’s time to make a #change. . . #blacklivesmatter #paleo #scicomm #science #history
