This amazing fossil, discovered by me and my mom, Lisa Marshall, at the Mother’s Day Quarry in Montana, exhibits several new scale shapes and orientations never before seen in Diplodocus. 2/8

Important perspective piece by @Tseng_ZJ in @thePeerJ : comparative FEA studies with low sample size (<11) can lead to false positives (for biomechanical performance - feeding ecology correlations in mammalian skulls, but probably more broadly!).

An article I handled as editor has just been published @thePeerJ Congratulations to A. McDonald (@WesternCenter) and collaborators and many thanks to @AlbertPrietoMa1, P. Bell, and @paleoduck for their expert assistance! #Dinosaur #NewMexico
