Last Allosaurus, promise

Well, I’m on a roll, so here’s some photos of a cast of an Allosaurus skull held in Japan.

    Beautiful! Hey, I don’t mind extra Allosaurus posts and photos. I’m one of those blokes that really gets into theropods. Thank you for the Allosaurus Spree!

    Can never have too much Allosaurus… it is so economic yet elegant in design. Kind of like the Honda Civic of theropods.

    Thank you for showing those museum exhibits! where I live now there are no museums of natural history.
    The web and books are my only sources for seeing these amazing beasts.

    Too bad most books only show a lateral view of the specimens so it’s very difficult to imagine these creatures in depth.

    “Big al” has been rather in the shadow of his bigger, badder relative, T-Rex..

    While his bite wasn’t bone shattering like a T-Rexes, he was no slouch in the killer dino department.
    I do wish however that there were more books describing the life that existed before the mesozoic period.

    Earth is a awesome place!

    Echoing the sentiments of everyone else, I say there can never be too much Allosaurus. From what I can see, in those three posts,it looks like there’s quite a bit of variation in the lower temporal fenestra on each of those skulls. Is it genuine variation, preservational distortion, or simply a result of differing reconstructions of the skulls, or something else?

    Those are some great photos showing off the skull.

    And Merry Christmas Dave, and all my dino loving friends.
