Preparing blog posts for Tet Zoo takes hours, sometimes days or even weeks. It’s done in “spare time”. Putting crap on facebook takes minutes and can be done during the course of a normal work day. Some of the stuff is soooo hilarious it deserves to be shared…
Francisco Gascó (aka Paco) knocked this up, thanks Paco. It was taken in about
1992 1994 (when I was 18 19): note the Battat dinosaurs on the terrarium lid, Greg Paul theropods on the wall, and Luis Rey spiky amargasaur t-shirt. The croc skull is a juvenile C. niloticus.
My one and only photo of a British big cat, taken on Dartmoor c. 1992. Yeah, right. From left to right: Ewen Bennett, Matthew Colmsee, Paul Rutkowski, John Martin. Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme expedition.
We had a big debate on facebook: who would win in a fight between all 540 toad species, Darwinopterus, or PZ Myers? Reese Witherspoon said Darwinopterus, and Science agrees with her!
Finally, here’s me in Mark Witton’s pterosaur dungeon (aka the foamadome), wrestling a baby titanosaur. Note the legendary trousers in the background, as seen on (web) TV!
Back to toads soon, but it’s all down to time…
