Conventions for Colouring Extinct Animals Using Melanosome Analysis Re-Written
Over the last few years there have been a number of research programmes with a focus on identifying and interpreting preserved melanosome structures in fossil specimens that may provide clues as to the colour of long extinct creatures. We have had papers published on ginger coloured dinosaurs (Sinosauropteryx) and interpretations of Archaeopteryx (A. lithographica) with black feathers. Establishing the colour of long extinct creatures, especially feathered dinosaurs has attracted a great deal of media attention lately. However, new research from scientists based at the University of Akron and the University of Texas in collaboration with a number of Chinese scientific institutions including the China University of Geosciences, has questioned the presumptions made in previous studies. In addition, this research team’s findings may provide new evidence as to a link between colouration of an animal and its metabolism.” Keep reading

"One distinctive feature of Scansoriopteryx is its elongated third finger, which is the longest on the hand (nearly twice as long as the second finger), and may be analogous to the insect-digging finger of the mammalian aye-aye (in most theropod dinosaurs, the second finger is the longest).” Wikipedia

Eodortoka morellana by Carlos De Miguel Chaves:
"Paleoillustration for a new scientific article about a new turtle: Eodortoka morellana, a Pleurodira turtle from the Lower Cretaceous of Morella (Spain). It’s characteristic in Eodortoka a fluted decoration in the shell. In the fossil site has been found fishes, sharks, crocodiles, urtles, spinosaurs and, as you can see, iguanodontians (in fact, Iguanodon).

This first book in Enik `n Newland’s “Unhinged History” series is a ripping yarn – full of adventure and deceit – that brings to life the best-known public spat in all of Paleontology: the bitter rivalry between Edward Drinker Cope and Othniel Charles Marsh that became known as “The Bone Wars.” Lively and witty rhymes plus beautifully demented illustrations by G. F. Newland reveal how the paleontologists’ infamous rivalry began and how their mutual obsession with outdoing and ruining one another spun out of control.
