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

This prickly pal is a #trilobite of the genus Comura. It crawled around warm, shallow seas 408 million years ago in present-day Morocco. Much like a cactus or porcupine, an array of defensive spines lined its body to deter predators from attacking. #FossilFriday @RoyalTyrrell

These lumpy bumps may not look like much, but they are super cool! You are looking at osteoderms that lined the back of the horn-snouted Jurassic theropod Ceratosaurus. Some theropods have #allthestyle #FossilFriday #dinosaur #science #jurassic

One of our technicians discovered a surprise while preparing this tyrannosaur maxilla (upper jaw)! A fossil pinecone wound up in one of the snout cavities of this dinosaur. #FossilFriday

Happy #FossilFriday! I hope you’re having as good a morning as these two Patagotitans I drew yesterday. Don’t know if they’re waking up or going to sleep, but it’s dawn either way. #Paleoart #SciArt #Paleontology

A slight #throwback for this #fossilfriday to earlier in the week when I had the opportunity to photograph the beak of Pelagornis chilensis at the Museo Nacional de Historia Natural! This “toothed” bird lived in Chile from 25-2.5 million years ago. #paleontology #bird #gradschool

I’m about to have a chat about Mary Anning, which has put me in the mood for marine reptiles this #FossilFriday. Here’s the first complete plesiosaur skeleton ever found, Plesiosaurus from the Early Jurassic Lias of Lyme Regis @NHM_London, which was collected by Anning in 1824

These 'woodstone' nodules have a piece of fossil wood running through the centre and sometimes contain Ammonites that where washed up against it while on the sea bed in the Jurassic period. I'm looking forward to seeing what's inside when I get my prep equipment! #FossilFriday

It's #FossilFriday! Here's #paleoart of the gigantic fossil alligatoroid Deinosuchus riograndensis. Deinosuchus is often restored as a dinosaur predator, but fossils suggest turtles were its preferred prey.
