Glad you liked it.  There are more to show off, but that is by far the most impressive.

Fossil Friday thank you @Troodon for posting some more wonderful  Natural History treasures . The crocodile scull Leidyosuchus  is so recognisable it is hard to believe it is 76 million years old.

 

Even Mrs Rico has started casting her eyes over this post, every week and enjoying it. 

 

Have a nice weekend all of TFF

Did you take this photo?  This guy collapsed a few weeks/months ago and is in sick bay right now being remounted.  It is Fossil Friday, I am sure that TFF member Tate Museum will put something up today after i eat lunch.

  • Here is the same Hoplophoneus specimen that troodon just posted, in sick bay.  That blob to the left of his lower jaws is part of the mount, and his front foot protruding form behind it.  This is a cast of a specimen from the White River Fm at  Douglas, Wyoming.

  • It was badly mounted to begin with... in an unnatural pose.  It would have to dislocate its shoulder blades to be in the  crouch position in troodon's photo.

Here is my Dinosaur Fossil Friday contributon for the week.  And I want you all to think about how this came to be... yes, this one comes with a homework assignment. 

 

This is from a Barosaurus specimen we are collecting and slowly prepping from south of Casper.  It is from the Morrison Fm, late Jurassic.  This bone is a cervical rib.  It is supposed to be straight.  Yes, this is the way we found it.  How did it get this crooked.  That is your essay question.   There are others form this quarry that are even crookeder. (Is that a word?)

The second photo here shows the bone in the field starting to be exposed.

The cervical vertebrae on this thing are scary... full of delicate features and a mere 3 1/2 feet long.  

 

Boshed by another dinosaur and then the rib healed?
