Here's a few skulls of the large predatory therocephalian Moschorhinus. I've been spending a lot of time with these guys this year studying all the parts of the specimens that aren't in the photo. #FossilFriday

Skull of a little baby scylacosaurid therocephalian from the middle Permian of the Karoo Basin. As adults, these were formidable sabre-toothed predators, exceeded in size only by Anteosaurus among contemporary carnivores. #FossilFriday

Four of the illustrations I did for @gsciencelady 's book, Beasts Before Us, are now available as prints, stickers, and cards on RedBubble! These illustrations show the evolution journey from synapsids in the Permian to early mammals in the Jurassic.

Quoted @boydpaleo

I proudly present to you: the beautifully preserved right arm of Dakota the #DinoMummy! Fingertips to right, elbow to left. Share far and wide!

Dakota the Edmontosaurus dinomummy returned to public display in a new exhibition which opened two days ago at @NDGSPaleo. Here is my illustration for it; my first in a museum. I glimpsed a cropped version of it for some signage, but I don't know if that's the extent of its use.

Happy to see the #OA publication of this exhaustive description of cranial anatomy in the South American aetosaur Aetosauroides, led by @voltairearts. A taxon with definite relevance to recent discussions of possible carnivory in this clade!

Crinoids! The flowery wonders of the sea! But what exactly are they? And why can they walk?

This month, @LenaDoesScience & @Davey_F_Wright are teaching us all about crinoids and how to draw them. If you have questions to ask and artwork to share, use the hashtag #InsertAnInvert!

New to the internet #paleoart for #FossilFriday: the complete version of a Hupehsuchus nanchangensis image I drew last year. Hupehsuchus is a super weird Triassic marine reptile with an armoured back and incredibly thin lower jaw. There's no crazy like Triassic crazy.

Super happy to finally be able to show this piece: Struthiosaurus austriacus in the middle of a late Cretaceous forest, done for the 92nd Annual Meeting of the Paläontologische Gesellschaft in Vienna. This piece took quite a while to finish.

This guy, probably Cyonosaurus sp., has been living in my office at the Smithsonian for a while! I’ve been doing some prep on the skull and have uncovered some cute dentary and maxillary postcanines! #fossilfriday!

For #FossilFriday its a cute little Permian puppy. Proburnetia is a Russian burnetiid (stem mammal family) from about 255mya. Skull ~25cm long, on display at the PIN, Moscow. Note the weird lumps and bumps all over the skull, which in no way detract from the cuteness

A painting of Syntomiprosopus, a newly named short-faced archosauriform from the Late Triassic of Arizona. This reconstruction was commissioned by @app_earth_sci professor Andy Heckert, who led the team describing this strange Triassic beast.
