Sauropod gut check

In the past I have posted a few times on unusual perspectives of our MfN dinosaurs, especially the big sauropods Giraffatitan (ex Brachiosaurus), Diplodocus and Dicraeosaurus. There’s one view that I didn’t write much about before, and I won’t write … Continue reading

Sauropod photogrammetry – oh WOW!

Dieser Beitrag auf Deutsch. As part of my current research project I have tried to make photogrammetric models of various dinosaur mounts, including the MfN sauropods. That’s a bother, for a number of reasons. First of all, photogrammetry and ribcages … Continue reading

Theropod Thursday 17: 3D blast from the past

I’ve spent a lot of time at the AMNH, considering the fact that I have resided in Europe all my life. Discounting a visit when I was ten years old, it’s been four visits totaling roughly five weeks, I guess, … Continue reading
