    Went to the Spinosaurus exhibit in the National Geographic Museum.  Over all a very impressive display. They also had a lot of information on the reconstruction process (which was extensive given that even after the recent discovery there was still a lot of the skeleton, especially the skull,  was a deduction based on adjacent bones).

    I love University museums. They are top quality but so, so affordable.

    Here are some paleontological specimens from utaustin's Texas Memorial Museum. I gotta say, when I saw that Quetzalcoatlus (the flying reptile pictured up top), big as a fighter jet suspended from the ceiling, it took my breath away.

    If you’re ever in Austin, check out that place as well as the other museums on campus.

    Been doodling Spinosaurus again after the new findings came out.  Also since every goddamn article and video about Spinosaurus has to compare it to T. rex, have a comparison between my rex and spino.  The legs are a bit bigger than NatGeo’s version after what Scott Hartman came out with.  Also thought it would be neat if the sail sort of mimicked the look of river debris and dead branches so it could camouflage itself as such when trundling along through the water.

Here’s something you didn’t see in The Land Before Time: An international research team of scientists has confirmed the existence of the world’s first semiaquatic dinosaur, in today’s edition of the journal Science. 

The Spinosaurus aegyptiacus, a ferocious Cretaceous-era creature, is reported to have been the largest predatory dinosaur on Earth. The dinosaur was discovered to have outsized even the Tyrannosaurus rex by nine feet. The study’s lead author Nizar Ibrahim described his work on the Spinosaurus as sort of “like studying an alien from outer space; it’s unlike any other dinosaur I have ever seen.”

    I am as excited as the next dino-geek about the new Spinosaurus material and accompanying paper, which suggests it was a bizarrely-proportioned, stubby-legged, quadrupedal fish eater with several adaptations to a semi-aquatic lifestyle,…
