Friends, colleagues, lend me your stapes. It is time once again for The Boneyard, a paleo blog carnival spawned by Brian Switek of Laelaps fame. I have been tapped to host this month, so sit back and enjoy the fun! Sadly, without an exciting paleo story in the news, the fires of the blogosphere have gone unstoked. That doesn't mean that bloggers don't have anything to add. Quite the opposite, in fact! Creative posts abound, and so the journey begins thusly!
Traumador invites us to visit a wonderful dinosaur museum and gives some interesting information about the unicorn horn of Tsintaosaurus. Traumador also invites us to gleam a sequel to his older "Meet a Prehistoric Creature" post with this cunning entry.
Always curious about the environments of bygone eras, Will Baird managed to scrounge together an excellent post on the ecology of the Carbon Age while getting ready to launch a rocket. Scroll down on his blog for more on that particular adventure.
Ever wonder what ostracods are? Did you know that they've been preserved with soft tissue? Get the whole story at The Other 95%!
What about this carnival's founding father, Brian? He's been posting a lot about his book lately, but has he had time to come up with his famously long uber-posts? Yes indeed! A variety of topics our boy covers, including book review, old dinosaur serials, and T. H. Huxley!
As for myself, I've been sadly lacking on significant paleo posts, as I've been worrying too much about Soulcalibur IV and PAX. But there have been a few offerings: A review of that terrible Jurassic Fight Club show, and a description of Eowyvern dorsetti.
That's it for this edition of The Boneyard! Don't know where the next one's gonna be. Come one, come all for volunteers, and I hope you've enjoyed this month's edition!
