So I’ve been seeing a lot of paleo artists depicting dinosaurs with earlobes. But I’ve decided to be a mega troll and give Borealopelta turtle ears- which basically means that it’s just hidden under the skin. >:DD
Plus they’re too busy taking in that sweet natural sunlight to care about hearing your problems.
Jk jk I’m sure borealo loves u too. 💚

Say hello to the latest thyreophoran dinosaur, Jakapil kaniukura! Bearing many traits that we would expect from the later Ankylosauria clade, such as an armored body.

For the people who aren’t on Twitter it’s been recently brought to light that a very influential paleoartist is a massive white supremacist whose professional career involves studying supposed links between genetics and proficiency at IQ tests. Haven’t seen much about it on here so I thought I’d post this

When a video game fucks up so badly that their dinosaur designs, that a made up dinosaur using Therizinosaurus as fusion material, is more accurate than the games actual Therizinosaurus model.
Segnoraptor (Therizinosaurus+Microraptor)
Tumblr media
Therizinosaurus model which has a dewclaw when real Therizinosaurus had all four toes bearing weight. It’s head is also large and blocky when the taxon is known for small narrow heads. Yes it would have had wings and a tail, because it was within Maniraptora. Dinosaurs not in Maniraptora have wing and tail feathers, since dinosaurs outside the group have them then phylogenetically all Maniraptora would have had wings and a tail. Though the wings should end at the tip of the second finger rather than stopping at the wrist. Its hybrid even has more feathers covering its body than it does.
Tumblr media
JW Alive just has the habit of taking actually decent models from the Jurassic World game, and making them worse. (For the most part anyway, there are a few exceptions where the Alive models are more accurate than the World Game models).

Haven't really seen any mentions of it on tumblr but Emily Willoughby (very well known palaeoartist who does a bunch of the drawings of avian dinosaurs) is really racist, there's a lot of information about it on twitter if you search her name (content warnings for racism, eugenics).
Thought it was important to mention considering how well known she is, probably everyone who's even vaguely into palaeoart has seen her feathered dinosaur drawings, so it's important to know about this and not support her.
