More Scelidosaurus stuff

The wonderful and articulated specimen of Scelidosaurs that I showed the other day went down very well. Such specimens do of course provide amazing information about the anatomy of the animal but the downside of this is that a lot of information is present *in* the position of the bones. That means you don’t really want to prepare the bones free of the matrix entirely but that then you can’t see them from every angle and get to every detail. There are ways around this of course from CT scans, to simply casting the specimen to create a record and then preparing the specimen fully. The other ‘solution’ such as it is, is simply to get hold of some other specimens. Here as promised then are some separate Scelidosaurus bits from the same exhibit in Bristol, enjoy.
