... the amazing social life of the Green iguana...

... and maybe something on feathered theropods. Plus vampire pterosaurs, Piltdown, plethodontids and more. Oh yeah, and, err, rhinogradentians :) Check back soon, there will probably be something new (he says).

So true. So in this non-comment, I won't tweak Darren about snouters nor will I complain about being teased. I also won't say that any teaser that features a picture of an interesting frog (and aren't they all?) is OK by me.
