A Teaser with Teeth

Just to let you all know, I'm prepping a big ol' post about saber-toothed mammalian carnivores. It's the next in my "taxonomy lessons" series. Remember the first one? A few posts down? About Puijila? Geeze, I'm focusing on mammals a lot lately. As I admitted to Scott earlier, the more I study mammals, the more interesting they become! I think it's the embolotheres that won me over. Freaky big-nosed brontotheres, man. Anyway, stay tuned for a new taxonomy lesson in the next day or so.

You're not the first one! I set out to study ceratopsids, and the next thing I knew 2/3 of my dissertation document focused on bovids (and I actually found it to be the more important and interesting part!).
