Megarachne was an eurypterid discovered in Late Carboniferous-aged freshwater strata in San Luis, Argentina. Originally described in 1980, it was wrongly identified as a mygalomorph spider based on the shape of its carapace among other things. It wasn't until 2005 that a second, more complete specimen was recovered from the same locality that it was concluded that it was not a spider at all, but in fact a large "sea scorpion" eurypterid. #paleontology #dinosaur #dino #dinosaurs #dinos #sauropod #paleomeme #Thalassocnus #paleontologymemes #paleontology #dinosaur #dino #dinosaurs #dinos #sauropod #paleomeme #fish #leedsichthys #paleontologymemes #eotyrannus #armadillosuchus #astrobiology #daspletosaurus #titanosuchus #speculativeevolution #megarachne #stethacanthus #speculativebiology #wuerhosaurus #tupandactylus #darwiniv #darwin4 #groveback #euchambersia #arrowtongue #megaraptor

Meaning

Meaning "Tupan finger," in reference to the Tupi thunder god, Tupandactylus is a genus of tapejarid pterodactyloid pterosaur from the Early Cretaceous Crato Formation of Brazil. Similarly to the modern day toucan, it used its massive semicircular crest to signal and display for others of the species. Although predominantly depicted as a piscivore, it has been suggested that Tupandactylus could have been a frugivore. It had a wingspan of five meters. #paleontology #dinosaur #dino #dinosaurs #dinos #sauropod #paleomeme #Thalassocnus #paleontologymemes #paleontology #dinosaur #dino #dinosaurs #dinos #sauropod #paleomeme #fish #leedsichthys #paleontologymemes #eotyrannus #armadillosuchus #astrobiology #daspletosaurus #titanosuchus #speculativeevolution #stethacanthus #speculativebiology #wuerhosaurus #tupandactylus #darwiniv #darwin4 #groveback #euchambersia #arrowtongue #megaraptor

Wuerhosaurus is a genus of ste

Wuerhosaurus is a genus of stegosauroid from the Early Cretaceous period of China and Mongolia. A likely broad-bodied animal, W. homheni's estimated length has been placed around 23 feet (7 m) and its weight at four tons, with the smaller W. ordosensis at around 16 and a half feet and 1.2 tons. Because only a sparse scattering of remains have been discovered, its dorsal plates were at first thought to have been much rounder or flatter than other stegosaurids, which was later established to be an illusion caused by breakage. It was also lower to the ground than most other stegosaurids, meaning it was specialized for feeding on low-growing vegetation. #paleontology #dinosaur #dino #dinosaurs #dinos #sauropod #paleomeme #Thalassocnus #paleontologymemes #paleontology #dinosaur #dino #dinosaurs #dinos #sauropod #paleomeme #fish #leedsichthys #paleontologymemes #eotyrannus #armadillosuchus #astrobiology #daspletosaurus #titanosuchus #speculativeevolution #stethacanthus #speculativebiology #wuerhosaurus #tupandactylus #darwiniv #darwin4 #groveback #euchambersia #arrowtongue #megaraptor

Stethacanthus is an extinct ge

Stethacanthus is an extinct genus of shark-lke Holocephalian which lived from the Late Devonian to Early Carboniferous, dying out around 323.2 million years ago. It was characterized by its unusually shaped dorsal fin, which was covered in enlarged dermal denticles. This crest may have played a role in mating, defense, or attachment to larger creatures, among other possible uses. Considering its small size it likely fed on small fish, brachiopods, and crinoid ossicles, not unlike other sharks of its time. #paleontology #dinosaur #dino #dinosaurs #dinos #sauropod #paleomeme #Thalassocnus #paleontologymemes #paleontology #dinosaur #dino #dinosaurs #dinos #sauropod #paleomeme #fish #leedsichthys #paleontologymemes #eotyrannus #armadillosuchus #astrobiology #daspletosaurus #titanosuchus #speculativeevolution #stethacanthus #speculativebiology #wuerhosaurus #tupandactylus #darwiniv #darwin4 #groveback #euchambersia #arrowtongue #megaraptor

Eotyrannus is a tyrannosauroid

Eotyrannus is a tyrannosauroid theropod from the Early Cretaceous Wessex Formation beds located in the United Kingdom. Primitive Tyrannosauroidea characteristics, such as elongated neck vertebrae and long, well-developed arms are prevalent within the genus, proving that the tyrannosaurs were not always huge and powerful carnivores, but had their origins in the realms of laster, lightweight hunters. Its name, meaning "dawn tyrant," references the animal's classification as an early tyrannosaur. Because the skeleton is of a juvenile, it cannot be said with absolute certainty how large Eotyrannus grew. #paleontology #dinosaur #dino #dinosaurs #dinos #sauropod #paleomeme #Thalassocnus #paleontologymemes #paleontology #dinosaur #dino #dinosaurs #dinos #sauropod #paleomeme #fish #leedsichthys #paleontologymemes #eotyrannus #armadillosuchus #astrobiology #daspletosaurus #speculativeevolution #speculativebiology #darwiniv #darwin4 #groveback #euchambersia #arrowtongue #megaraptor

Armadillosuchus was a sphagesa

Armadillosuchus was a sphagesaurid crocodylomorph that is known to have lived in what is now Brazil during the Late Cretaceous. It shares a number of mammal-like features in its teeth and jaws, most notably the flexible, banded, body armor that lined its back in a similar fashion to modern armadillos. Despite this, Armadillosuchus is completely unrelated to mammals. It was discovered in 2009. #paleontology #dinosaur #dino #dinosaurs #dinos #sauropod #paleomeme #Thalassocnus #paleontologymemes #paleontology #dinosaur #dino #dinosaurs #dinos #sauropod #paleomeme #fish #leedsichthys #paleontologymemes #armadillosuchus #astrobiology #daspletosaurus #speculativeevolution #speculativebiology #darwiniv #darwin4 #groveback #euchambersia #arrowtongue #megaraptor #shark

Leedsichthys is a member of an extinct croup of Mesozoic ray-finned fish known as Pachycormidae that lived during the Middle Jurassic period. It is the largest bony fish to have ever been discovered. The unusual proportions and poor preservation of the animal have given way to a wide range of possible sizes, sometimes estimated to be as long as 115 feet (35 m), although more reasonable estimates have approximated between 23 and 49 feet. It is for this reason that it was given its species name, "problematicus." Like the whale shark today, Leedsichthys obtained food using an array of gill rakers lining its gill basket to extract zooplankton from the water. #paleontology #dinosaur #dino #dinosaurs #dinos #sauropod #paleomeme #Thalassocnus #paleontologymemes #paleontology #dinosaur #dino #dinosaurs #dinos #sauropod #paleomeme #fish #leedsichthys #paleontologymemes #astrobiology #daspletosaurus #speculativeevolution #speculativebiology #darwiniv #darwin4 #groveback #euchambersia #arrowtongue #megaraptor #shark
