New paper providing us more info on the Ornithopods of the Lourinhã Formation Abstract: Ornithopods are one of the most speciose group of herbivorous dinosaurs, rising during the Jurassic and getting extinct at the Cretaceous–Paleogene boundary. However, most of the attention has been given to derived forms (hadrosaurids). Herein, cranial and post-cranial ornithopod material from the Upper Jurassic Lourinhã Formation and housed at Museu da Lourinhã is described and discussed. http://app.pan.pl/article/item/app006612019.html
Carter and I are starting to slowly begin work on a program that will be about Jurassic era Dinosaurs. We will not do this until the 2020/2021 school year and I am really pretty excited. We decided to stop pursuing other dinosaur fossils (except for a Hell Creek Anky/Nodo lol) so that we can start piecing this together. We have about 10 months to make this happen. Educationally speaking it will be awesome to focus a program on the Jurassic era and show kids what dinosaurs were really running around at this time. This presents some fun challenges for us as collectors. Morrison Forma
