#FossilFriday Here are some more fossilized skin impressions-this time from the hadrosaur Corythosaurus. We have a couple cabinets worth of hadrosaur skin impressions (some found with skeletal material) at the @MuseumofNature collections

I get a kick out of the catch all explanation that dinosaur tail pathologies are the result of tyrannosaur predation. How about some other possibilities... Fallen trees, intercourse, aggressive displays, other dino’s tripping over one sleeping? #FossilFriday #dinosaursarecool

A fish and a frond! I think the fish is Priscacara, but I don't really know. This was at the WDC in 2017 and may still be there. #FossilFriday #FridayFishFry

For example, we’ve move Fossil Friday, started by our palaeontologists on Twitter years ago over to Facebook Live. Our palaeontologists will still tweet fossils on Fridays, but our main accounts will ...

Happy #FossilFriday! Ammonites (right) may look similar to a modern nautilus, but while they are both cephalopods, ammonites are more closely related to octopus and squid than they are to modern nautilus!

Here's a Smilodon femur waiting (very patiently) for me to glue it to a plexiglass slide. Once the glue dries, I'll cut it again and start grinding down the thin section until it's thin enough that light can pass through to illuminate the bone's microstructure! #FossilFriday

Holotype specimen of Vancleavea campi (below) from @PetrifiedNPS and a cast of a skull from an articulated referred skeleton from @GhostRanchorg, NM. This species of reptile may have lasted over 11 million years during the Triassic, which is far, far too long. #fossilfriday

Our beautiful baby Scelidosaurus @NHM_London, with the holotype for scale. This has a lovely example of the classical ornithischian-type pubis and also comes with another surprise, some patches of preserved scaly skin #fossilfriday #NHMdino

The Museum’s famous dinosaur “mummy”—of duck-bill Edmontosaurus annectens—gives a rare glimpse of the texture of dinosaur skin. Fossilized skin is a rare & exciting find: it offers info on how skin patterns compare to living reptiles. #FossilFriday
