Of Aquatic and Feathered Dinosaurs

Taking a quick break from doing proofreading work at the moment. Some interesting new stuff going on in the world with dinosaur news and all that.

First off, earlier in the week, I posted this little entry about the aquatic dinosaurs business. Brian Switek posted this more definitive statement on his Dinosaur Tracking blog over on Smithsonianblog.com...

Paleontologists Sink Aquatic Dinosaur Nonsense

*****
Then, yesterday, the Ottawa Citizen had a new piece about a recent dinosaur find:

Canadian Scientist Unveils Giant Feathered Dinosaur Find


*****
Discover Magazine posted this inciteful piece by one of the folks involved in the discovery with some interesting photos:

The One-Ton Turkey: Further Adventures in Slow-Cooked Science

Lovely stuff, that piece.


*****
Finally, Brian Switek has put some interesting observations on this new discovery in his Dinosaur Tracking blog once more:

Yutyrannus, the Most Cuddly Dinosaur Ever


Lots of food for thought in these dinosaur musings of the last couple of days.

Back to proofreading again.
