With gratitude to Dr. Thara Vayali, ND for inviting me to Gil’s incredible seminar yesterday.

The newly discovered dinosaur is a herbivorous species with a parrot-like beak and, strangely, sharp canines sitting in front of tall teeth meant to cut up plants.
A strange and tiny dinosaur has just been documented for the first time in scientific literature. Almost as strange as its physical appearance, was its journey to being described.
Fossils of the family of this dinosaur, called Pegomastax africanus or “thick jaw from Africa,” have appeared everywhere from China to England. It was first discovered 50 years ago in South Africa but was soon scooped up by Harvard University. The fossils were never described and then, when it was shipped back to Cape Town’s South African Museum, the true nature of the fossils remained undiscovered.
Definitely one of my favourite pieces from the recent show.

Reg Harris (1920-1992) was Britain’s greatest track cyclist in the 1940s and 1950s, winning many titles — including one at 54 years old. Some serious legs on that bloke.
