I am having a lot of fun visiting the various museums and landmarks in Washington, D.C. this weekend, and while I don't have much time for blogging I wanted to share a photo from my brief stop at the National Museum of Natural History. Even though I spent most of the day talking to paleobiologists behind the scenes (watch Dinosaur Tracking for details) I did have the chance to briefly check out the new ocean gallery. Pictured above is the skull of the suspended mount of Maiacetus on display in that exhibit.

Thanks for sharing the article about the newly discovered dinosaur, Tianyulong confuciusi, covered in feather-like structures. Dinosaurs were truly more diverse than we ever thought. I also love the photo from the museum. Hope you had/have a great trip.
That beastie was published, like...a month ago, and they've already got a mount up? Awesome!
