In this article I give an overview of some of the articles and palaeontological outreach I have been involved in over the past two years on the 2nd year anniversary of the Jurassic Finds blog.
On the 25th March 2019 a new joint palaeontological fieldwork expedition was announced. This fieldwork will see palaeontologists from the Natural History Museum London, The University of Manchester, The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis and the Naturalis Biodiversity Centre in the Netherlands work together in the Badlands of Wyoming USA to discover new Jurassic dinosaur remains in addition to other animal remains from 150 million years go.
This article will share my thoughts on this fieldwork project, which will be starting this coming June and why Wyoming remains my number one dinosaur field site locality to visit.
December 2018 saw some incredible fossil research being published. In this article I summarise what fossil discoveries occurred and which one discovery stood out to me the most over the Christmas period. Continue reading “A Summary Of The Fossil Discoveries Of December 2018”
On the 5th of December 2018 new research was published by palaeontologists in the Journal of Nature about the analysis of blubber tissue in a preserved specimen of the Early Jurassic ichthyosaur Stenopterygius. This article will examine this fossil discovery and why it is important evidence for warm bloodedness in ichthyosaurs. Continue reading “Ichthyosaur Blubber Discovery: Evidence that these Marine Reptiles were Warm-Blooded!”
On the 21st of November 2018 new research was published in the Journal of The Royal Society about the discovery of a new species of dinosaur named Macrocollum itaquii. In this article I examine this dinosaur discovery and what it means for understanding early dinosaur evolution during the Triassic era.
After what must be over 18 years I visited the Natural History Museum in London yesterday. In this article I give my laid back review of what I saw, what dinosaur exhibits I thought were brilliant and those that I felt could be improved upon further.
