This morning, we were super-excited to see that the Houston Chronicle’s story about our paleontology team’s recent discovery of a Dimetrodon giganhomogenes made the front page!

Dimetrodon Found!

You can read the full story online, or check out the video below – the Chron’s fascinating interview from the site of the discovery with our curator of paleontology (and blogger!) Dr. Bob Bakker.

    That’s very cool. Dimetrodon has always been a favorite of mine since I was a kid.
    I’d absolutely love to see a fossil skeleton on exhibit somewhere. Amazing animals. What a great find!
