Phytosaur skull update #2

17 03 2009

Good tidings and well-wishes!

Here’s the latest update on the great phytosaur project. Go here for part one (https://tanystropheus.wordpress.com/2009/02/11/phytosaur-skull-update/)  and go here for a nice review of what exactly a phytosaur is (http://www.hmnh.org/archives/2007/10/21/phytosaur-portraits/).

And here’s the photo which I referenced for my logo (courtesy of the famed HMNH):

May the fossil record continue to enchant us all.

You’re most welcome for the links, Matt! There is a glimmer of hope for the ‘Phytosaur’ campaign due to the fact that the recent efforts to nickname the school’s student body ‘The Mavericks’ were put on hold recently. I shall keep phyting!

The cartoon mascot was actually wearing a threadbare basketball jersey (I’m not sure why seeing as we don’t have an actual basketball team, but I digress..).
