Greetings From South Africa

Hello from South Africa!

I am a paleontology student in SA. I recently stumbled upon your interesting site :)

I work with Mammal like reptiles (therapsids) from the Karoo Super Group of South Africa. Mostly I study basal therapsids from the Permain

Welcome to the Forum from Connecticut., USA. :)

Coincidentally, I am just about to start reading Peter D. Ward's book, "Gorgon", about these fascinating creatures!

I would enjoy hearing anything you have to tell us about the Karoo Supergroup, and the therapsids.

Welcome, again.

Regards,

Thanks for the warm welcome!

I'm currently working on piecing together a Dinocephalian. Previously my work focused on the basal group of therapsids known as the Biarmosuchians. I don't know too much about the Gorgonopsians at the moment but here at the university we have a huge collection of them. A colleague of mine is working with the gorgons as part of his Phd.

It's great to see people from all over the world talking and learning about all kinds of fossils!

Thanks again for the welcome, and regards

Welcome from Missouri, USA.

I've heard amazing things about the Karoo deposit. We'd love to see some here. :)

Context is critical.
