Finally it’s here!

The most important paleo-thing I’ve ever written since How to Properly Restore the Winged Arms of Aviremigians - Final Corrections. An entire post about pterosaur  wings: shapes, colours, pycnofibres, thigh or ankle attachment, uropatagium and folding. Or, to put in another way: What You wanted to know about Pterosaur Wings but You’ve Never Asked!

You can read it here: http://ktboundary-smnt2000.blogspot.it/2013/12/what-you-wanted-to-know-about-pterosaur.html

You don’t have the faintest idea how much work did I put in it. Let’s just say that I published a rough version of it around early December. So, like 9-10 months in development. Of course it will be a huge amount of crap since I’m not a paleontologist, but I tried to do my best.

Try to enjoy it!

Marine Reptile Month #18 — Plotosaurus

Late Cretaceous period (72-66 mya)

Plotosaurus was one of the most “advanced” mosasaurs in terms of anatomical adaptations, with a highly streamlined body and a large tail fin enabling it to swim at high speeds as a pursuit predator. It grew to lengths of between 9 and 13m (25’6”-42’8”), and probably fed on fish, ammonites, smaller marine reptiles, and aquatic birds — swallowing them almost whole thanks to snake-like flexible jaws.

And, yes, mosasaurs almost certainly had forked tongues. Based on their evolutionary relationships to varanoids and snakes, it’s also possible that they might have been venomous, too.

These are a few of my favorites from my thesis that I never got around to posting from earlier this year. 

Oh wow thesis?! I wonder what it was about specifically?
