Heliocoprion for the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology by Karen Carr
“Heliocoprion’s remarkable jaw spiraled out and down, so that teeth were rotated backward under the jaw. Heliocoprion is known from fossil sites across the globe, but the use of its unusual jaw is not clear.”
This is one of my favorite animals.

Palaeontologist Mark Witton posts several photos from the “Dragons of the Air” exhibit that’s taking over London’s Southbank Centre as part of the Royal Society Summer Science Festival. This is the same exhibit I posted the “making of” video about a couple of days ago.
Why am I not in London right now?
Going on holiday for a week. Don’t do anything too exciting while I’m gone, k?
I leave you with some sparkly ammonites, in the meantime.
