Knowledge. If you want to learn or read the real story of Life and planet Earth, simply learn to read the fossils story. They are the pages of the Earth’s book. I took this picture in the desert of Siwa, awesome place in Egypt. It is a simple sea urchin fossil from the Pleistocen time. It just the proof that once upon a time, the ocean was there and full of life. Open your eyes and you will see that Nature is the amazing book to read and to protect. #wild #nature #canon #canonfrance #canonphotography #Lightroom #freediving #correze #egypt #iPhoneX #dahab #freediver #timberland #alchemyfins #octopusfreediving #polosub #uwphotography #BW #bwphotography # khielsfrance #alexandria #sepia #macrophotography #macro # #officialmauijim #woman #camarafrance # fossil #paleontology

Spinoraptor arnheinicus. (a.k.a Austroraptor on steroids) Since it's becoming popular when it was released on JWE. I decided to made an "accurate" version of it. . let's hope this ain't gonna be my last post this year...🙃 . #arnheinjurassicart #spinoraptor #spinosaurus #velociraptor #hybrid #dinosaur #drawing #pencildrawing #art #paleoart #illustration #naturalhistory #paleontology #jurassicpark #jurassicworld #jurassicart
#dinodinaseries - Uno de los últimos días de clase del 2018 realizamos un encuentro con las docentes y los chicos y chicas del Colegio CDI de Asunción, para ver como les habia ido con el primer libro "La Partida" de la colección de DinoDinaSeries. Para nuestra alegría encontramos un numeroso grupo de mentes ávidas de intercambio de opiniones e informaciones, y un respeto sin igual entre todos los participantes. Hicimos una ronda con las preguntas que mas les habian interesado y escribimos sus respuestas individuales y colectivas en uno de los ejemplares y lo sorteamos al final. - One of the last class days of 2018 we had a meeting with the teachers and the boys and girls of the CDI School in Asunción, to see how they had done with the first book "La Partida" from the DinoDinaSeries collection. For our joy we find a large group of minds eager to exchange opinions and information, and an unequaled respect among all the participants. We made a round with the questions that most interested them and we wrote their individual and collective responses in one of the copies and we sorted it out at the end. - #dinosaurofinstagram #dinosaures #outofthephone #hikaricreative #dinosaur #dinosaurio #escuela #educacion #filosofia #everydayparaguay #paleontology #asuncion #paraguay #streetphotography #dinovember #dinoworld #everydaydinosaur #shootermag #1415mobilephotographers #instagramjapan #lensculture #toydinosquad #toydinosaur #tea_journals

My new novel "To Fall From Bliss" is a thought-provoking journey about following your heart while trying to identify yourself from the other 7 Billion personalities on Earth! And Bella, an angel who is as fierce as fire— and she must be— in order to defeat this evil reptile thing'e, unlock Enlightenment, and save Humanity from an era of darkness! Let's take a closer look.... What do you get when you mix the ambition of "The Little Engine That Could" with a wiz kid from Mensa? A 60,000 word middle-grade “educational–adventure” that covers everything from the Birth of Earth and how Gravity connects us all; to simplifying the Cycle-of-Life, Ecology, and the Reasons for the different Seasons; also elaborating Life's "Fork-in-The-Road", addressing Bullying, and demystifying THE MYSTERY OF LOVE!!! And this happens while taking the reader on a roller coaster ride of intellectual amusement, with that slimy reptile-like creature I told you about trying to ruin the fun! #ToFallFromBliss #OprahBookClub #BellaFromBliss #Oprah #GayleKing #CarlSagan #YoungAdultNovel #StephenHawking #Michiokaku #HarryPotter #ChrisThaFifth #Mensa #NeilDegrasseTyson #ChildrensBooks #Geology #Educate #Biology #Earth #Astronomy #Paleontology #Physics #Cosmos #MilkyWay #Universe #Space #NASA #SelfHelp #Teach #NoblePrize #PulitzerPrize

Evolution of Filter Feeding and Gigantism in the Ocean (Part Thirteen): The Leopard of Antarctica As one of Antarctica’s top predators, the Leopard seal is the second largest seal in the world (imagine a mermaid-dog the size of a racehorse!). The fossil record is hugely patchy when it comes to seal evolution, so if you have questions, ask @palaeo_james_rule because that thing is a mess, but this lineage most likely originated in the MIDDLE Pliocene. These “suckers” engorge themselves on penguins, squid, fish and are also capable of filtering out krill between their trident shaped teeth. It's the equivalent of a lion slurping up ants on the Serengeti and one individual was necropsied with 10,000 krill in its stomach. Filter feeding is clearly critical to the survival to these giant seals in the Southern ocean. Filter feeding has enabled some creatures in evolutionary history to get to gargantuan sizes, but none have readily approached the size of the Blue whale today. But did i miss out on any? The flying reptile“Pterodaustro” comes to mind, but they exactly “gigantic”. List them down into the comments! I want to know!

Evolution of Filter Feeding and Gigantism in the Ocean (Part Twelve): The Gliding Devil Fish Manta Rays are the largest of all the rays, reaching up to 7 metres in width. There are two extant species and these enigmatic rays date roughly back to the latest Oligocene, 23 million years ago in the fossil record. With their forward facing mouths, the “Manta” slowly swims around its prey (similar to Basking sharks), herding the zooplankton into a tight "ball" and then speeds through them with a its mouth agape. While feeding, mantas flatten their cephalic fins to channel food into their mouths and the small particles are then collected by the tissue between the gill arches. Despite their immense size, they are still considered vulnerable. A single dead manta ray is estimated to be worth between $40-$500 dollars in your average fish market. By contrast, a single manta ray may contribute more than 1 million dollars to the global tourism trade during its lifetime.

Evolution of Filter Feeding and Gigantism in the Ocean (Part Eleven): The Duck-faced Mourasuchus We’ve talked about filter-feeding crocodiles before (with the 100 million year old Stomatosuchus) but by far one of the most bizarre reptiles that ever existed within the Amazon jungle was the 12 metre long FILTER FEEDING caiman, the duck faced Mourasuchus. The bizarre anatomy of the mid -late Miocene (6-10 million year old) Mourasuchus has been a matter of colossal debate. Its rostrum was broad and dorso-ventrally flattened, with slender mandibles and a short symphysis (as seen with baleen whales) with small teeth. This would be suitable for a “filter-feeding” way of capturing prey, with an envisaged “gular sac” reminiscent of pelicans that would function for this straining technique (similar to Stomatosuchus). Mourasuchus was a dead end experiment in the evolution of crocodiles. The long-term environmental stability of the Amazon would have provided the perfect environment for these bizarre Miocene filter-feeding crocodiles, but monumental change in the earth would soon occur and by the Pliocene, hydrographic changes linked to the Andean uplift would kill off Mourasuchus and its associated gigantic kin.

Evolution of Filter Feeding and Gigantism in the Ocean (Part Ten and a half): The Filter Feeding Sharks (2/2) Feeding for these sharks occurs either by ram filtration, in which the animal opens its mouth and swims forward, pushing water and food into the mouth, or by active suction feeding, in which the animal opens and closes its mouth, sucking in volumes of water that are then expelled through the gills. Unlike the Megamouth shark and whale shark, the Basking shark relies only on the water it pushes through its gills by swimming; the Megamouth shark and Whale shark can suck or pump water through their gills. The Megamouth is undoubtedly the most mysterious out of all three. It was discovered on November 15, 1976 when a specimen became entangled with the anchor of an American naval ship off the coast of Hawaii and since then, only 100 specimens have ever been found. Thats not bad, but how dope is that story?!

Evolution of Filter Feeding and Gigantism in the Ocean (Part Ten): The Filter Feeding sharks (1/2) There are three extant species of filter feeding shark: the largest fish in the ocean, the Whale shark “Rhincodon typus”, the similarly sized Basking Shark “Cetorhinus maximus” and the ever-elusive Megamouth shark “Megachasma pelagios”. All three diverged from completely separate families and converged on similar shapes and strategies to filter feed. Now remember, the fossil record is hugely biased. Finding evidence of these giants is incredibly difficult. Despite their huge size, their teeth are minuscule but there appears to be evidence of the Megamouth sharks dating back 42 million years ago, with the other two giants appearing within 10-15 million years thereafter. Whale sharks are the largest living fish, approaching the size of a modern Humpback whale. There are unsubstantiated reports of them getting even bigger than 12 metres. In 1868, the Irish scientist Edward Perceval Wright observed specimens reaching 21 metres in length. They swim fin and tail with gigantism and filter feeding. They have jaws that are more than 1.5 metres in length; raked with 350 rows of tiny teeth (possibly vestigial?) along with ten distinct “filter pads” that facilitate filter feeding.

Evolution of Filter Feeding and Gigantism in the Ocean (Part Nine): The American Paddlefish I wouldn't exactly call the American paddlefish (“Polyodon spathula”) a “giant”, but they utilize a unique strategy for obtaining their food. There are two species alive today, the monstrous and critically endangered Chinese Paddlefish, which can reach up to 7 metres in length. It is a strict piscivore, but the vulnerable American Paddlefish has its origins from the early Cretaceous, although it is unknown when filter feeding came into play. The largest specimen ever caught was over 2 metres in length and weighed 90 kilograms! For a freshwater fish, that is humungous. The gill rakers of American paddlefish are composed of extensive comb-like filaments, which in addition to aspects of their skull and their jaw, allow for filtration of zooplankton in the murky water. Adults have completely lost any evidence of teeth. Electroreception appears to have largely replaced vision as a primary sense, which indicates a reliance on electroreceptors for detecting prey. This is an incredible relict fish that is on the verge of extinction.

Los trilobites aparecen en el registro fósil en el Cámbrico, hace unos 524 Ma. y son los fósiles más característicos de la Era Primaria. Sobrevivieron durante 300 Ma. hasta su extinción a finales del Pérmico. Se consideran uno de los grupos de invertebrados más longevos y diversificados. Los había carroñeros, depredadores, filtradores y sedimentívoros, ocupando nichos en aguas abiertas, fondos marinos y en las comunidades de arrecifes. Fueron los primeros animales en desarrollar ojos complejos, lo que probablemente influyó en su éxito evolutivo. También fueron los primeros artrópodos en tener un exoesqueleto de calcita, lo que facilitó su fosilización.

Fun Fact! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Indiana Jones’ real life inspiration was not an archeologist but an American paleontologist named Roy Chapman Andrews! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Roy Chapman Andrews was an explorer, paleontologist, naturalist, marksman (one hell of a shooter), and an adventurer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Roy Chapman Andrews became the director of the American Museum of Natural History in 1934 and is best remembered for his series of dramatic expeditions to the Gobi of Mongolia (1922 - 1930) where the first nests of dinosaur eggs, new species of dinosaurs, and the fossils of early mammals that co-existed with dinosaurs were first discovered. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Roy is one of my top role models and I hope to be just as great as him one day. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To learn more about Roy Chapman Andrews, visit: https://roychapmanandrewssociety.org/roy-chapman-andrews/ ・・・ #Paleontologist #Paleontology #Dinosaurs #Dinosaur #Adventure #Adventurer #Explorer #Exploration #Marksman #Shooter #Gunfighter #Biology #Naturalist #Environmentalist #Environment #Nature #NaturalHistory #History #AMNH #Museum #HowDoYouMuseum #IndianaJones #Indy #Science #Research #Gobi #Mongolia #Desert #Travel #Earth
