  1. Hi y'all, I went to the AMNH literally days before NY (and the world) shut down. There definitely seemed to be less people than I presumed was usual. Despite spending just a couple of hours there, I can say it's my favorite museum. Unlike many museums, most of the specimens on display are complete or mostly actual fossils. I really want to go back to take my time and comb through the entire museum. I wish I took more pictures - guess I was too busy admiring it all. You can tour the museum yourself on Google Earth (the link should drop you right into the Saurichian hall). I realize there are several other topics about the AMNH, but I figured I could contribute some new/more views of the same specimens or at least a couple of new things. Façade:
  2. Quick tour of my trip to The Ultimate Predator: T.rex exhibit at the American Museum of Natural Hisptory, NYC back in September. Some pics are not of the best quality and I apologize - the room was very dark. Speaking of which, in that dark room when you come face to face with Tyrannosaurus rex at the end of the exhibit, you are left imagining how frightening it would be to encounter such an animal in the evening . Most representations of Tyrannosaurus rex I come across don’t phase me because they either appear too outdated, or unrealistic. This is one is different because it’s not Hollywood. Whether the representation is accurate or not, it’s realistic and quite the brute. Would love to know everyone’s thoughts on this giant rex display. Positives: If you love Tyrannosaurus rex / tyrannosaurs then this is for you: all updated information and facts regarding the animal and its lineage. Dinosaur models are all very cool, realistic, and finally with feathers. Some very rare, incredible specimens on display, but few. Organized and easy to follow as you walk through the timeline. Negatives: Much more replicas than actual specimens.
  3. Every once in a while you find an amazing website that you never new existed. This is one from the American Museum of Natural History. They are short articles with great photos about natural history including many about paleontology, including the Trilobite Tuesday posts. ENJOY http://tumblr.amnh.org/?amnhnyc Trilobite Tuesday posts: https://www.tumblr.com/search/trilobite tuesday
  4. AMNH papers made public

    I'm not sure if this has been posted anywhere else on the forum. If it has, I apologize. AMNH has digitized all of its research papers and made them available to the public for free. All you need to do is clink on the link below and type the subject you wish to search. . http://digitallibrary.amnh.org/handle/2246/5/discover
  5. Ventured up to Manhattan last weekend to tour the American Museum of Natural History, which is currently one of the largest dinosaur exhibits on the planet. I hope you enjoy the photos as they were take on an iPhone 6 and the lighting might be off in a few spots. For starters here's picture of myself next to a massive Tyrannosaurus Rex cast. I believe the head in the glass box on the left is a real head.
  6. Last June, my husband and I went to the American Museum of Natural History for a day-trip with our mineral club. That place is huge! There were a lot of exhibits I would have liked to see, but one day just isn't enough time to see everything--especially when I want to read the tags for everything! As it was, we took an in-depth exploration of two rooms, and my husband took a set of photos of the dinosaur room. We started with the Meteorite collection. There's a lot there, starting with and gorgeous slice of the Esquel pallasite and the Willamette meteorite in the entrance hall: That's me standing with Willamette. On our way to the Meteorites collection, we passed by this case of trilobites and paused for a picture: The Meteorites collection was relatively dimly lit, and it was difficult to get good photos. Here's a couple: After we left the meteorites (having read everything), we took a lunch break, then went for the fossils. Mr. Spirifer wanted to see the dinosaur collection, while I wanted to see something I haven't seen before: the primitive mammals. So, he took the camera on a good look around the dinosaurs, while I took a quick look around there and went on to the mammals. Here's some cool bones: Deinonychus antirrhopus: Struthiomimus altus: Deinocheirus mirificus arms: More to come!
