First thing's first though: disclaimers. Although I will be writing about dinosaur-themed topics as well as various other interests of mine, I want to make clear that I'm simply an enthusiast, and not a actual paleontologist with any form of degree. I have a volunteer job at the Los Angeles Natural History Museum where I work as an educational docent, have taken classes on paleontology and geology, and have published writings in online magazines, but everything posted here doesn't come from an "expert". Just someone who loves to learn, and loves sharing what he has learned with others. If you want to read from actual experts, there's plenty of other blogs out there that can fulfill your wishes, such as TetZoo, SV:POW, and Mark Witton's Blogspot.
I hope to use this blog to introduce people to new ways of looking at science. Whether it be hard factual discoveries that shape the way we perceive the past, to speculative sciences that allow people to see things they find familiar in a new light. This is a place to educate those who know little, while also enriching the experiences of those that know much.
As such, this is also a blog that will openly take requests if people wish to learn more. I will be sure to take the time to read every post made here, and if anyone wishes to pass me a question, either here, on Facebook, or some other form of media, I'll try my best to answer it.
And with that, I thank you all for joining me at my new location. I'll leave you all with a rather popular picture of the LA Natural History Museum's famous mount of a Triceratops prorsus (LACM 59049) and Tyrannosaurus rex (LACM 23844).
|Picture by yours truly, with shameful iPhone quality to boot.|
Pictures of that will be coming soon! Cheers! :)
