I posted on the type specimens and other birds and I ran through to get pictures of dinosaurs to integrate into lectures. Never enough time.
Here are some of the better pictures. If I had a complaint about the museum it would be this - so much glare. So it goes.
|Acanthostega - nice intermediate between fish and amphibians|
|Archaeopteryx - close enough to dinosaurs!|
|Deinonychus manus - note the reduced number of digits and carpels|
|Deinonychus skull - built for ripping your face off|
|Diatryma - a bird, taller than me and three times as kick ass|
|Plateosaurus - an early quasi-bipedal sauropod - note the reduced outer digits|
|Prestosuchus - early archosaur|
|Gallimimus - very bird-like dinosaur|
|Temnospondyl - early amphibian|
