Another newt. This one was trapped in a drain so we relocated her.

The idea is there in the literature if you're interested. Ken Carpenter proposed squatting during egg laying in his book on dinosaur eggs and nesting.

Thank you for the reply! Yea, in theropods is suspected that they would be all bird like but in sauropods it’s hard to imagine squatting 🦕

This amazing free-standing Australopithecus skeletal model has turned up from the insanely talented ... this will be awesome for teaching. He’s making a very limited number, if anyone’s interested in grabbing one.

Incubation period of Troodon (longer than modern birds, shorter than "typical" reptiles and ornithischians, as might be predicted):

I'm Beth, I work as a freelance artist and as a advocate. I have a particular love for hyenas and I draw hyenas for . Most people don't count this as a job. However, I will not be told otherwise.

Oh - I was only referring to sauropods there. Non-bird theropods and such likely laid with crouched limbs like birds do.

It's a good question and we don't know the answer. Has been suggested that they squatted. An ovipositer has also been speculated. But it might instead be that the eggs could cope with the drop.

I have a suggestion. How about reporters stop asking whether or not political leaders “believe” in climate change and start asking if they understand it instead.

This is so important & often overlooked! By clearing your yard & keeping things "clean" or "pretty", you're removing native habitat. I understand the need to stay safe from ticks & mosquitoes, but let's try for a happy medium, ok?

I think so. Definitely camels and pecorans (the horned clade). Not so much in pigs, hippos, peccaries (or whales). I've tweeted about it a few times... with dissection photos.

It’s incredibly hard to describe how utterly sad it feels to be a scientist and dad in a country being dictated to by a small group of science-denying clowns putting their own short term political gain over the long term public interest.
