Colouration in Mesozoic creatures: the list so far
(Updated 2017-05-13) - minor edits to grammar and other minor stuff, addition of the new extremely well-preserved nodosaur specimen which among other things preserves hints towards its original coloration. Also added Saurolophus.
One of the most promising and interesting breakthroughs in paleontology during later years is that we have been able to study the actual colouration of extinct animals. Close-up studies using microscopes may unveil preserved pigments in exceptional fossils and, though very rarely, sometimes allow us to make educated guesses and infer the color of the animal based on the shapes of pigments in modern animals.
This Journal entry serves as a summary of the animals whose colouration (or part of colouration) we know so far and will be updated with new information and discoveries as we analyze more specimens preserved with pigments.
Species with preserved melanosomes not yet interpreted as specific colors include non-avian dinosaurs Ornithomimus, Yix

NUKING 'Toroceratops' -The master list!!!
Any questions about why "Toroceratops" theory is not valid should be directed here. If you want to know more about it, just read this and if you have questions about Toroceratops or Jack Horner's other hyper-lump theories, comment here - it's a lot easier and less messy than asking me about it in the main page comments.
Q: I have heard that the Jack Horner theory about Torosaurus being nothing more than old individuals of Triceratops is getting a lot of pushback. Paleo King, what are your views on the theory, and what does the evidence actually say?

A: They are arm-waving. Horner actually has a pattern of doing this, it isn't the first time. Remember the “obligate scavenger T. rex”? Every piece of evidence Bakker, Currie, Weishampel, etc. looked at, Horner basically ignored or dismissed or even denied – even things as basic as eye socket shape – just to preserve his precious theory. Later Horner confessed that he “never liked T. rex anyway” (h

The irrational fear of dinosaurs no longer being classified the way you used to learn.
According to this newest theory, the Saurischia we used to know (Theropoda + Sauropodomorpha) is wrong and theropods are more closely related to ornithischians, with which they form the new clade #Ornithoscelida. Saurischia now only contains Sauropodomorpha and the Herrerasauridae.

Spec Evo challenge?
Hi guys, as you may know I have beside Paleo Speedsketching now the format "How To Paleo" (HTP) on YouTube and I thought about bringing
something else in.
With Spec Evo challenge I had in mind to bring up a general theme every two weeks, something like: "megaherbivorous penguin", "realistic skullcrawler" or "monopedalien". I would challenge you to produce a believable design in form of a sketch and I will show them in a video were I might pick one of the designs to produce my own version or would show my own take on the theme.
What do you think, who would be interested to participate?

The Utahraptor Project
You may or may not know about a huge block that holds several Utahraptor ostrommaysorum individuals of several ages together with two Hippodraco scutodens from Utah. Obviously this is an awesome find and since the previous material of the largest Dromaeosaurid is quite scarce, this find is really usefull to find out more about the animal's look. (hint hint: it's not your average raptor)
Problem is that the project needs awareness and money. It's a big amount of work to do. There's page to fund the project here:
In comes the "Love In The Time Of Chasmosaurs" blog who has just launched a little competition everyone can participate in to raise some awareness. Draw in a funny way how you think these dinosaurs ended up in this block. Winners get a price. (extra points for accuracy)
More info about the contest here:

This is bad for everyone on DeviantArt. The website Payposter is selling our work without our permission and illegally. I will not tolerate this behavior under any circumstances. For the sake of all, I recommend signing this petition to shut the site down and prevent your art from being next. Please, take a stand and don't let this happen to you or anyone else.

The Fail that is Brian J. Ford
It's hard to believe it's taken this long to slog through enough things to have time to think long and hard about this event a few years back. You may by now know of the antics of a certain Brian J. Ford, who publishes articles in pop-science mags claiming that dinosaurs "don't work" on land and had to be aquatic - a hollow theory that conclusively went extinct over 50 years ago in the face of mountains of evidence to the contrary. Literally every one of Ford's beliefs was debunked by Bakker in The Dinosaur Heresies, and it's not as if Ford ever presents anything new that Bakker hadn't already covered and disproved. One wonders if he ever read the book!
Brian J. Ford is a "professional dilettante" when it comes to dinosaurs - and that's putting it lightly. He makes his money off of writing about things he has no understanding of, as if he is a trained expert. In 2012 he claimed that non-avian dinosaurs could only move around in shoulder-high water (hmm, lets see, no web-feet, st

This counts as blasphemy against Mauricio Anton
Remember this?
Well, here's a link to his s̶h̶i̶t̶h̶o̶l̶e̶ channel. Since that publishing, he's gotten more content on his channel.
MOTHER OF KAYV LAYANZExtreme LaRoar Scream ,this guy hasn't been off-put by the paucity of views and proportionally copious dislikes and debunking comments to his videos. He just keeps going.
But of all the shit he's posted, this is the one that's hit home the closest. If he wanted to make this video anymore insulting to me, he'd have to start talking shit about KAYV LAYANZExtreme LaRoar Scream.
He still hasn't realised that in what the rest of us call "real life", convergent evolution is a thing.

Magical rings not included
So I've got this fantasy setting I've been messing with off and on for the last, oh, 758 years now, but I never really seem to do much with it outside a handful of crappy vignettes that nobody reads. Part of that is because I can never decide quite what I want to do with it.
Lately I've been playing with the idea of taking it a bit more in the direction of the classic fantasy settings with the different races and magic and shit, but still keeping it grounded with (most of) the various peoples just being different species of hominid and the magic being more of a dirty, shamanistic pagan system that involves a lot of reading of bones and entrails and going into trances and whatnot that would more often than not probably be pretty creepy to anyone watch

I got published!
The Lords of the World” is a detective story in the style of Arthur Conan Doyle, set in a world of H.G. Wells’ Martian Invasion. It is available here from Alternate History Fiction magazine.
"When a damsel in distress turns out to be more dangerous, and in more distress, than she first appeared Percival Q. Sing, moon-born professor of law and ethics, and his esteemed colleague Mu-Rau the Martian imam must dive into the nest of terror and oppression that is the England a century after the Martian Invasion."

Draconiformes 2.0
I seems like I come closer and closer to the point where I begin to redraw all the extant dragon species I once begun with
and which still are the basic for the public understanding of the draconiformes.
But science, my skills and my access to scientific work marches on and many of these first 
drawing don't represent my current knowledge anymore.
I made many mistakes at these prototypes, many are way to theropod like, some are shrinkwrapped
some have four wing fingers instead of three, some show their teeth and in most cases the brachiopatagium reaches 
just down to the hips.
If everything goes as I plan, there will be a lot of new profile pictures of the dragon species you know already, accomplished with
portraits and pictures of the skull.
P.s. Also, the distribution of some species will change.

1.) What do you think the future of humans will be like in 10-20 million years(morphology, psychologically, culturally, etc,)?

2. )What's your preferred media to use in art(pencil, paint, digital, etc,)? What kind of media do you want to use?

3. )If you been asked to go to the moon, would you do it?

4. )What's your opinion on genetic engineering?

5. )What's your preferred pet of choice?

6. )Strigops habroptilus or Apteryx?

7. )What is one of your favourite monster in Greek mythology?

8. )What is your opinion on cryptozoology? 

9. )What is your favourite recent palaeontological discovery(lythronax, The body of Deinocheirus, the "flightless" Pterosaur, feathered Neornithischian, etc,)?

10. )What is your favourite species of Tyrannosaurid?

1. In 10 Ma from now, we would've gone interstellar, meet alien life forms. We would be a psychologically more mature species, and would've changed all our energy source into renewable ones... Our morphology would look different in the reducing of digits IV and V, a slightly less complex gut, etc.
This is assuming that we will still be a sapient species in the meantime...

2. Traditional pencil art! It suits me most... Also am trying to study a little bit more on digital arts.. (Photoshop).

3. Well, I'd since it would be a once-in-a-lifetime experience... The journey upwards won't be comfortable for me, though...

4. It's useful to solve our problems.(esp food shortage)... Not so keen on it's applications on humans, though...

5. Something other than the usual dog, cat, rabbit,etc.. Preferably a reptile..

6. Kakapo or kiwi... I'd have to choose the kiwi, since it's more ancient and abberant

7. Possibly argus, chimaera, or Ladon...

8. Can be considered healthy science when cryptozoologists actually use the scientific methods of deduction... Which is not what most do... (Basically, they jump to conclusions too much)

9. I'd have to say the "Kundurodromaeus" (that feathered Siberian ornithopod) caught my attention the most... Might be the proof of the feathered ancestral condition for dinosaurs...

10. Alioramus, simply because it's the weirdest   It might not even be a proper tyrannosaurid

"Christians need to understand the first chapter of Genesis for what it is: an 'accurate' rendering of the physical universe by ancient standards that God used as the vehicle to deliver timeless theological truth to His people. We shouldn’t try to make Genesis into something that it’s not by dragging it through 3,500 years of scientific progress. When reading Genesis, Christians today need to transport themselves back to Mt. Sinai and leave our modern minds in the 21st century. If you only remember one thing from this chapter make it this: Genesis is not giving us creation science. It is giving us something much more profound and practical than that. Genesis is giving us a Biblical Theology of Creation."
