🐘🐘 usually chew on one set of🦷 (upper part: lower jaw with 2 molars). Humans replace their 🦷 vertically, so a new 🦷 forms underneath the old one. 🐘🐘 replace their 🦷 horizontally. The new tooth pushes from behind to the front as you can see below in section. #FossilFriday

Replying to @paleokrahl: Reposting this for #FossilFriday because I really think this cool section deserves more attention.

Aldabra giant tortoises rest after a busy week of grazing and browsing on the atoll. As reptiles they must rest to avoid overheating in the midday sun, they like to huddle together with their heads facing towards the center, but there is always one! #tortoisefacts #reptilelife

Happy #FossilFriday! I Encountered a decomposing adult T. rex in a Bavarian forest the other day - including an easily missed 'Easter egg' (a dromeosaurid?). Wonderful to see a display like this; the autumn mood & litter made it even better! (DinoMuseum Altmühltal)

With our new paper hot from the press (), I can now share this video showing the result of our #XCT experiment with @poldiego at the @esrfsynchrotron, on eggs of the sauropodomorph dinosaur Mussaurus, just in time for #FossilFriday!

This piece titled "It's a Delicate Balance" was recently commissioned for the Minneapolis Institute of Art. I worked with them on featuring many endangered species. It took me months to complete. Is approximately 9ft wide by around 6.5' high.

Following all the attention Pendraig got, another paper of mine just got published! Likely of less interest to the general public, but closer to home, and with a focus on teeth and histology, I learned a lot from this!

Scheuchzer envisioned his work to summarise and organise everything then known about fossils; the ink sketch might thus be related to uses of ammonite fossils in Germany (and Switzerland?) to heal sick cows. (The one depicted here would soon be beyond help, I reckon)

Another page from Scheuchzer's unpublished 'Lexicon Diluvianum' for #ManuscriptMonday, featuring two special images: A half-ammonite, painted by Sch. himself ('Acarnan' being his @Leopoldina nickname), and the dramatic (but bucolic style) cow-slaughter-to-come (ZBZ MS Z VIII 21)

A special treat for #FossilFriday - J.J. Scheuchzer's fossil Oehningen pike (Esox lepidotus) & the print of it from Physica Sacra (1731-35). I love the name it had back then, 'Lucius Antediluvianus'. Also: This fish was the first to tell the world its own story as a fossil.
