American Museum of Natural History @AMNH🔁On this , meet tiny-headed Stegosaurus: at one time, some scientists thought Stegosaurus had a 2nd brain because the twitter.com one in its head was so small. (Turns out, Stegosaurus did manage with 1 walnut-sized brain.) Find this fossil in our Hall of Ornithischian Dinosaurs!
Ben Grace @BG_Grace🔁It's and I wanted to share with what we found at the Gem and Mineral show in Tucson Arizona: an eurypterid from New York & a needlenose fish (origins unknown).
Ben Grace @BG_Grace🔁Gettin' back on my game! (warning: creepy crawly ahead)
Chimerarachne yingi - an arachnid that from the early Cretaceous with a sort of tail likely meant for sensing predators and prey. May be “a kind of missing link” between uraraneids and primitive living spiders
Ben Grace @BG_Grace🔁For this I'm showing off an ongoing vertebral kinematic project. Using a 3D scanner, we're scanning vertebrae which we'll then digitally rig up and move. Hopefully next week I'll have some awesome dino tech news to share...

Gordon Neighbour @CornubiaGeol🔁Happy ! Beautiful armadillo (Dasypus bellus) is a common Florida . Osteoderms--the plates of their armor--are frequently found, while intact fossils of their fragile skulls are rare. They had very simple peg-like teeth (pictures).
Ben Grace @BG_Grace🔁This we are featuring the carapace of Peritresius ornatus, a sea turtle from the late Cretaceous of New Jersey. This specimen was collected in Gloucester County, NJ and described by Don Baird in 1964. See it on display at the NJ State Museum
