The early Dunkle gets the fish! Had a great time today at the Science Through Multimedia Stories workshop led by @lady_naturalist , @paleoparadox , and @sci_story (Twitter handle). One phrase said today in passing really resonates with me: "Outreach and communication of the science is just as important as the science itself." - The wise Gabe Santos. Some great resources for anyone looking to up their #SciComm game are: sara-elshafie.com Cosplayforscience.com Have fun with it, fam! #2018SVP #dinosaursarecool #paleontology
The Bone Wars, also known as the Great Dinosaur Rush, was a period of intense and ruthlessly competitive fossil hunting and discovery during the Gilded Age of American history, marked by a heated rivalry between Edward Drinker Cope (of the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia) and Othniel Charles Marsh (of the Peabody Museum of Natural History at Yale). Each of the two paleontologists used underhanded methods to try to outdo the other in the field, resorting to bribery, theft, and the destruction of bones. Each scientist also sought to ruin his rival's reputation and cut off his funding, using attacks in scientific publications. #history #paleontology

MAMUTE LANOSO /woolly mammoth O mamute-lanoso ou mamute-lanudo (Mammuthus primigenius) foi a última espécie de mamute que se adaptou as regiões mais ao norte do planeta. Em relação a outras espécies do gênero Mammuthus eles são animais de tamanho modesto com um porte aproximado ao elefante-africano atual. Os hábitos e aparência desta espécie estão entre os mais detalhados entre as espécies pré-históricas, por conta das descobertas de carcaças congeladas na Sibéria e Alasca, assim como esqueletos, dentes, conteúdo estomacal, estrume e pinturas rupestres. O mamute-lanoso conviveu com os humanos, que os caçaram para conseguir comida, além de usaram seus ossos e presas para fazerem ferramentas, habitações e artes ( pingentes ). Os mamutes-lanosos começaram a desaparecer por volta do ano 10.000 a.C, uma população isolada sobreviveu até o ano 5.600 a.C na St. Paul Island . #fossil #fossilwatch #animals #animal #extinção #extinction #extinción #jurassicworld #paleontologia #paleontology #paleontologist #historychannel #animais #animaisfantasticos #pic #pics #history #paleontologie #fossilwatch #eradogelo #glacial #naturalselection #biology #picoftheday

Infont of the @museumofsurrey a massive Shantungosaurus attracting visitors in. This hadrosaur from China was around 15 meters in length! It's head alone was almost as long as a person! It's hard to imagine a sauropod sized hadrosaur but that's what makes it even more breathtaking when you get to see it up close! I don't exactly know why the people who made this life sized model decided to add a butt hole to the dinosaur, but I guess it adds to the realism of the piece and give an idea of where it would be located! 🤷‍♂️😂 #dinosaur #dinosaurs #paleontology #paleontologist #paleontologia #palaeontology #hadrosaur #shantungosaurus #parasaurolophus #china #chinesedinosaurs #vancouver #surrey #britishcolumbia #surreybc #museum #paleomemes #paleoart #geology #dino

Some of the Edelman Fossil Park crew had a great time at Sewell School tonight! We made cast and mold fossils, had a great display of fossils and 3-D prints, and educated about all the prehistoric marine life we find in the quarry. #edelmanfossilpark #fossilpark #latecretaceous #canyoudigit #paleontology #sewellschool #rowanuniversity
Since it’s still #internationalfossilday I can get away with posting a few extra bugs. The first one had a bite taken out of its back which sucks for him. The third one must have been the ancestor of some politician because he’s kissing his own ass. I collected these on the weekend and finished the preps today. #trilobitesofinstagram #rocks #paleontology #fossilpreparation #goldbutt #greenops #nature #naturalhistory #ontario #trilobite #canada #pyritized #pyritizedbuttsofinstagram #greenops #devonian #hobbies

Hey, I'm here again! ⠀ I've had a really messy #inkober for now, and I'll probably just post another three drawings of such thing when the days arrive. Until then I'll leave here an Allosaur doodle I made in school. ⠀ #art #artwork #doodle #sketch #pencil #drawing #paleoart #paleontology #dinosaur #allosaurus #prehistoric
CLICKBAIT, ROUND 3: Time to Rant. Note: I deleted this post last night due to a ridiculous amount of hateful private messages and comments. Here it is again, edited down. The closest modern relatives of theropod dinosaurs (such as the 66 million year old “Tyrannosaurus rex”) are the birds that fly amongst the skies today. Over 165 million years of evolution separates “Tyrannosaurus rex” to a chicken; the earliest birds began diverging in the mid Jurassic. It’s true, from a cladistics point of view, that birds are technically dinosaurs! But a spectacular amount of time separates these two groups; the direct descendant of bats, whales and even humans was around some 66-70 million years ago. This post gives the impression that Tyrannosaurus rex EVOLVED into a chicken. This is COMPLETELY FALSE and not how evolution and natural selection works AT ALL... Like all non-avian dinosaurs, the Tyrannosaurs were obliterated 66.03 million years ago when a bright fireball in the sky slammed into earth. All birds (from ducks and geese, to large ratites such as ostriches and moas and even eagles and pigeons) come from one single grouping of birds just before the K-T boundary extinction event. What is most concerning about this post is the absurd coverage. Almost 20,000 likes, along with a quarter of a million people following this page. This is clickbait BS. Imagine what you could say to a quarter of a million people. What would you say? It’s our duty as scientists and science communicators to tell EVERYONE that we are in the midst of the worst extinction event EVER, and yet we are still arguing about the existence of manmade climate change in parliaments worldwide. It’s happening. The lives of animals that have been around for hundreds of millions of years are facing their worst extinction threat yet: politicians unwilling to understand the critical science behind anthropogenic change… Also, CHIKENS. #afoolsexperiment #science #palaeontology #fossils #paleontology #rocks #teeth #museum #zoology #skeleton #bones #jurassicpark #iceage #megafauna #evolution #naturalselection #extinct #dinosaur #extinction #picoftheday #tooth #melbourne #australia #geology

Today is the internationalfossilday , so this #taxonomytuesday I reintroduce you the best of some taxonomical posts about the most exciting creatures that roamed the earth: Dinosaurs were a superorder of reptiles extinct about 66 million years ago. This superorder contains two orders: According to the old taxonomy the 2 orders were Saurischia and Ornithischia. Saurischia used to contain three suborders: Sauropodomorpha, Theropoda and Aves (birds); And Ornithischia used to contain four suborders: Stegosauria, Ankylosauria, Ornithopoda and Ceratopsia; but last year the university of Cambridge(@cambridgeuniversity ), in collaboration with the Natural history museum of London(@Natural_history_museum ), after careful studies on the evolution of dinosaurs, has been proposed to radically change their classification. this new classification moves the theropoda, except herrerasauria, in the ornithischia order, so now the Sauropoda clade becomes an order and it's formed a new order called ornithoscelida, this word were coined by the famous biologist Thomas Henry Huxley to indicate the missing link between reptiles and birds but this clade haven't been used for 150 years. The word dinosaur was coined by the famous british paleontologist Richard Owen and it means "terribile reptile". #naturalscience #universityofcambridge #naturalhistorymuseum #naturalhistorymuseumlondon #sauropod #sauropods #likeforlikes #follow4followback #theropod #theropods #followforfollowback #taxonomy #dinosaur #dinosaurs #dinosauria #fossil #fossils #reptiles #extinct #animal #animals #vertebrate #vertebrates #paleontology #biology #science #nature #naturalhistory #like4likes

Chilesaurus diegosuarezi🇨🇱👶🏻🦖 . De 145 millones de años fue el primer terópodo jurásico descubierto en Chile ( por un niño! 😂) De alto como un lobo 🐺pero con casi 3 metros de largo. - Una de sus particularidades es que era hervíboro🌿, si si, terópodo y hervíboro, con pico córneo,dientes en forma de espátula y pelvis propia de Ornithisquios.🦆 - Pero, ATENCIÓN,según la nueva clasificación de Baron y Barret de 2017 podría ser un Ornithisquio basal(y no saurisquio), más emparentados con los terópodos que con los sauropodomorfos,formando el grupo Ornithoscelida. - ¡Que se pongan de acuerdo los paleontólogos👨‍🎓👩‍🎓 porque no podemos clasificar a ciencia cierta los nuevos descubrimientos! 😂🤦‍♂️ Desde noviembre de 2017, estos restos fósiles fueron exhibidos por primera vez al público en la exposición temporal del MNHN «Dinosaurios, más allá de la extinción» Link al artículo en la revista Nature: https://www.nature.com/articles/nature14307 _______________________________________________________ #chile #dinosauriosenchile #chilesaurusdiegosuarezi #chilesaurus #🇨🇱 #dinosaurios #dinosaur #dinosaurs #dino #teropodo #ornithischia #saurischia #theropod #herbivore #herbívoro #jurassiclife #paleoartist #dinoart #paleontology #paleontologia #paleontologist #paleontología #science #naturemagazine #jurasico #jurásico #jurassic #fossil #fosil

Human-driven past and likely near-future losses of #mammal #biodiversity will probably take 5-7 million years to recover under an ecological best-case scenario in terms of evolutionary diversity & >7 million years in terms of body size diversity - see our new study in #pnas http://bit.ly/mamPNAS. Some of the greatest past evolutionary losses include the endemic South & Central American #ungulate orders Litopterna (#macraucheniapatachonica , back) & Notungulata (#toxodonplatensis , front).

And I’m done! Finally finished this skeletal reconstruction (with feather impressions) of a 50 million year old bird called Gallinuloides wyomingensis. This artwork was based off a wonderful fossil specimen (scroll right) found by a friend in the Green River Formation near Kemmerer, Wyoming. Gallinuloides was an extinct species of bird from the Galliformes order which contains modern ground-feeding gamefowl such as turkey, grouse, chicken and pheasant. I suspect therefore this would have been the tastiest thing on the menu during the Eocene!! #artwork #commission #art #artist #paleoart #palaeoart #sketch #drawing #colorpencil #prismacolorpencils #prismacolor #tonedpaper #scientificillustration #illustration #fossilart #bird #eocene #gallinuloides #fossilbird #feathers #fossil #fossils #fossillovers #fossiladdict #fossilsofinstagram #paleontology #palaeontology #inktober #inktober2018 #micronpen
