Diplodocus carnegii cervicals, from Hatcher (1901)
February 7, 2013
Here are cervical vertebrae 2-15 of Diplodocus carnegii in right lateral view, from Hatcher (1901: plate 3). Click to embiggen, and then just gaze in wonder for a while.
Wouldn’t that look smashing, printed, framed, and hanging on the wall?
I wonder if I will ever stop finding new interesting things to think about in this image. I doubt it.
Thanks to Mike for the scan.
