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!

@Toastcat4618 Ha! Actually, the latest research on this via @thePeerJ shows that Brontosaurus is probably still a valid name! :)

New Gaitsym paper. Incorporating limb stresses reduces speed estimates in T.rex @wisellers @PaleoStu @DrPhilManning

@NHM_London ...and plenty to choose from in this great round-up of "ocean giants" by @DrCraigMc & co, ofc :) -

Great! First citation of Geckolepis megalepis! in Regeneration:

@AugustHerman @frickhilda Här har du Wang et al som även de kom fran till samma sak. Oavsett person är idealen de samma.

Washington Post: "Tyrannosaurus rex couldn't run, but it was a speedy walker"

Science Magazine: "To escape predators, this gecko sheds something unusual: its skin"

New Scientist: "Giant flying reptile was top predator like a winged T. rex"
