Coming back to where we started, here we have another view of daspletosaurus, a predecessor to the Tyrannosaurus Rex.
Across from it is a reconstruction of the skull of a newly discovered species, spiclypeus shipporum.
This one bears the nickname Judith, for where it was found, near the Judith River in Montana. The artist's rendition does make for a photogenic dinosaur.
One last look at the daspletosaurus. My, what big teeth you have.
Out in the Queens Lantern, I took more shots of the Moon.
That is some moon!ReplyDelete
Threatening! :-) :-)ReplyDelete
Judith was here ... and how big she was!ReplyDelete
I keep wondering ... why the moon has so many craters?
Still at Brian May´s 3-D-book on the moon :-)ReplyDelete
You are going to become an expert on dinosaurs, William.ReplyDelete
@Cloudia: it is quite a sightReplyDelete
@Ella: lots of asteroid collisions and no atmosphere to soften them.
@Iris: one often forgets he's a scientist as well as a rocker.
The craters on the moon are well displayed.ReplyDelete
Tyrannosaurus Rex is my grandson's favourite dinosaur!ReplyDelete
I have noticed that the surface of Mars looks similar to the moon but with a pinkish cast.ReplyDelete
...I assume that they weren't vegetarians.ReplyDelete
From horns to teeth ~ unique displays ~ReplyDelete

Very cool! I presume you saw the photos and video from Mars! Very interesting.ReplyDelete
Do you remember all you've learned about the dinosaurs? Our kids, then grandies, went through that phase. I've forgotten them, though, for the most part.
Big scary monsters all, and it's amazing that little kids like them so much. I guess they figure, being a bit scared of the whole big world, that if these monsters get into museums, they must be manageable somehow!ReplyDelete
The artist's impression of Judith is quite extraordinair William. So much easier to take pics of the moon at close range 😉ReplyDelete
T Rex....the world's most famous dinosaur.ReplyDelete
I've enjoyed this tour, William!ReplyDelete
Impressive and scary dinosaurs.ReplyDelete
Reminds me of something Frederick Lawrence Knowles once wrote: "The night walked down the sky with the moon in her hand."ReplyDelete
Dinosaurs were such scary creatures.ReplyDelete
@Marie: they are.ReplyDelete
@Magiceye: t-rex fascinates.
@Janey: that is true.
@Tom: not ones like dasplestosaurus.
@Carol: thank you!
@Jennifer: yes, I've seen the Mars shots. And I remember a lot about dinosaurs. Never really outgrew that phase.
@Barbara: that could well be the case.
@Grace: that it is.
@RedPat: I've enjoyed showing it.
@Bill: that they were.
@Revrunner: quite fitting.
@Marleen: and fascinating.
I would hate to encounter the t-rex cousin, major scary that one.ReplyDelete
That moon is still an eye catcher.ReplyDelete
Very much so.Delete
And now we are on mars.ReplyDelete
Time changes all.Delete
