I am a palaeontologist living and working in Alice Springs, in the red centre of Australia. I moved here with my wife and three kids from Johannesburg, South Africa. I used to focus my research on dinosaurs, and it is fair to say I am still a dino nut but these days I work on fossils from the NT, be they turtles, tassie tigers or anything else. In my spare time I like to watch birds, catch beetles, lizards and snakes and generally find out as much about the species around me as I can.
I snapped this pic while in the South African Museum in Capetown this April. Although the individual bone preservation isn't fantastic it is one of the few symmetrical undistorted Massospondylus skulls (if a little juvenile). The whole thing is just under 11 cm long. It was found in the upper Part of the Elliot Formation (Early Jurassic) near the town of Ladybrand in the Free State, South Africa.
