Viavenator (Hunter of the Road)

Illustration of the skeletal remains (Photographs are not yet available)
               A well preserved skeleton of a new abelisaurid has been described. The holotype of Viavenator exxoni was found in the outcrops of the Bajo de la Carpa Formation (Santonian, Upper Cretaceous), northwestern Patagonia, Argentina.

Abelisaur (Unknown Genus)

              A femur of an as-yet unnamed Abelisaur theropod was recently discovered. The only information gathered is that the approximate size of the animal would have been around 9 meters.

Timurlengia (Of Timurleng)

Teeth; mirrored
left frontal and holotypic braincase
Right articular, Surangular, Left Quadrate, Right Dentary, and Right Maxilla
Assorted Vertebral fragments
Manual and Pedal unguals
                A new Tyrannosauroid theropod, Timurlengia. euotica, has been described from the Late Cretaceous of Uzbekistan. It shows evidence of evolution amongst Tyrannosaurs and adds to the rather broad image of the group of Tyrant Lizards.

Boreonykus (Northern Claw)

          A new genus of Dromaeosaurid was recently uncovered from the Pachyrhinosaurus bone-bed of Alberta, Canada. The animal has been coined, Boreonykus. certekorum. Only a few fragments have been found which are shown here; a frontal and associated post-cranial elements.


          So, you are here on this blog (hopefully) and your wondering, what is this all about? Well this blog is a mass archive of the backbone of all living things. Skeletons (mounted, etc.), Fossils, Fossil mounts, Life-Model Reconstructions, fragmentary fossils, and gems & minerals will all be posted on this blog as a sort of 'Museum' or 'Gallery'. You may use anything that I post here for whatever you need. Hopefully this blog will be updated as often as possible (like 1-2 times a week) but it may be slower.
