Looking at Aetosaurs in a Whole New Way

Jeff Martz's recent post at Paleo Errata reminded me of this recent article which came out two months ago. Check it out, you can tell that the writer had a lot of fun with this, and the photo (see courtesy photo from http://www.santafenewmexican.com/ below) is great.

Of course, one comment made in the article regarding the similarity to modern crocodiles led to a Google search which turned up what could best be described as um....., you got it, croc porn.

All of this aside, what a great specimen of Typothorax!

  1. I didn't realize that osteoderms were flexible enough to be used as "claspers." I have the sneaking suspicion they are looking at displaced lateral osteoderms, which get spikey in the pelvic region.
