The gliding Stegosaurus

Those in dinosaur research might well be aware of a joke SVP abstract a few years back that claimed Stegosaurus was a cursorial biped. That however has nothing on this report from 1920 that describes this substantial animal was a glider, using its plates for wing. As far as I can tell it’s quite genuine. It’s also awesome. Go read.

My hat is tipped in the direction of John Hutchinson and Jeff Martz for this.

Hesperosaurus mjosi

This will be bordering on my shortest post ever as i really have noting to say beyond, what a lovely and dramatic mount. What a lovely and dramatic mount.
