Archaeopteryx spectacular

Oh, maybe not *that* good, but here at least are three specimens (and counterplates, so even 5 kinda), all originals, courtesy of my recent trip to Munich. More has been written on this dinosaur / bird I suspect than any other with the possible [...]

Interview with Mick Ellison

Today I’m delighted to be able to interview Mick Ellison. While some of the work here might be familiar, I suspect Mick as an artist is below many people’s radar. He himself might claim that his palaeo work is more in the realm of [...]

Sunday sand: green grains of Groningen (and a lot of gas)

Through the Sandglass [2010-12-19 05:27:00]   recommend this post  (196 visits)
Having celebrated the sand enthusiasts of the Netherlands in my previous post, it’s an appropriate time for a Dutch sand (again, thanks to Carla) – one that displays, with subtle understatement, some seasonal colours (although, given the current [...]

After a few months of a period of stability in Eyjafjallajökull volcano after the eruption ended on the 28th of May 2010. There seems to be more instability starting again in Eyjafjallajökull volcano. This instability can so far only be … [...]

Lal the chicken-eating cow

Tetrapod Zoology [2010-12-20 14:06:00]   recommend this post  (160 visits)
People often send me links to stories of the Indian cow that took to eating baby chickens. The story isn't at all new: it appeared in the press in March 2007, and at least one of the cow's lapses into carnivory was filmed. It's shown here (though [...]
