O HEEY #FossilFriday So I work on anything w bone.. so this pushes me to read about all sorts of vertebrate groups, lately, it's been 'placoderms'. 'Placoderms' are nature's answer to "What if fish but also beetle?" Let me tell you about these armored fish. Thread #Scicomm

For this #FossilFriday here's a neat animation I made a while ago of Scaphognathus in both living and skeletal moods. Their poses don't match 100% but I still think its cool.. special thanks to @Pete_Buchholz who helped me with some bony details (as he does)

It's #FossilFriday, which means it's time for Lemmysuchus, a species scientifically proven as the most rock and/or roll of all teleosaurids. This #paleoart is a deliberate homage to those most grisly and metal of all palaeoartworks - John Martin's scenes of Mesozoic life.

Let's start your #FossilFriday the right way. An exceptional, 180 million year old ichthyosaur with skin. Just look at the dorsal and caudal fin! Simply stunning. Collected from a quarry at Holzmaden and on display at the Hauff Museum.

I had to finish this recon of Tyrannosaurus rex in record time because it will be featured in an upcoming magazine article. It is always fun to reconstruct T. rex. I recently did another one but that one is still under embargo and can’t show it yet #paleoart #sciart #FossilFriday
