My article (with @MarkWitton) 'Neck biomechanics indicate that giant Transylvanian azhdarchid #pterosaurs were short-necked arch predators' was one of the top 5 most viewed #Paleontology and #Zoology articles published in @thePeerJ journal in 2017!

@DinoBryno @Himmapaan And don't forget the @alfmuseum Parasaurolophus! https://t.co/w6kNW19VtN

@Toastcat4618 Ha! Actually, the latest research on this via @thePeerJ shows that Brontosaurus is probably still a valid name! :) https://t.co/1VZjizGk2Y
