Switzerland was home to dinosaurs as well! There is a quarry in Frick, AG, which has yielded many nearly complete and beautifully articulated specimens of Plateosaurus. The biggest ever found is currently being preppared at the SMA for display. 📷

The Mantellisaurus skull on display in Hintze Hall is a replica: the real thing is too fragile to mount (the rest is real though). So, here’s some parts of the original skull from the collections along with a skin impression from the same animal

! Today's featured fossil is the oyster Exogyra coastata. This specimen comes from the Ripley Formation (Late Cretaceous) of Blue Springs, Mississippi. The shell has small parallel holes. These are bore holes left by Clionoid sponge feeding on the shell 71 MYA!

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s…a pterosaur! Pterosaurs evolved flight long before birds. Some species, including this 87–81-million-year-old Pteranodon, flew over inland seas where they hunted fishes and other prey.

The skull of Emydops, one of the smallest dicynodonts, from the South African Karoo. This animal could have curled up in your palm.

This is the gorgeous skull of a new species of Allosaurus, referred to as ‘Allosaurus jimmadseni’. The specimen was found in 1990 at Dinosaur National Monument . It is still being studied and will hopefully be published soon. A very cool specimen.

There's still a few hours left of , so here's of Triassic oddball Helveticosaurus doing Helveticosaurus stuff. They were early marine reptiles, somewhat like seals in lifestyle, but maybe not as cuddly. Not that you should be cuddling seals or anything.

Happy ! Ecphora fossils are very interesting finds, but all I ever find at Calvert Cliffs are fragments of them, such as with this one I found in 2016.
