Mounted skeleton of Emeus crassus

Emeus crassus mount

In a back room at the Field Museum, from my visit in 2012.

I took a lot of photos of the neck, which nicely records the transition in neural spine shape from simple to bifurcated–a topic of interest to sauropodophiles.

    It would be nice to see some of those transition photos — I thought this was going to be nice, detailed photo post, then it suddenly ended after the second image!

    Yeah, this was supposed to be one of those posts where we actually make good on our theoretical status as a photo blog. But since there is audience demand, I will do a follow-up. Stay tuned.

    I seem to have accidentally clicked on Theropod Vertebra Picture of the Week! Seriously, it’s all good and, if it makes any difference, I’d be up for some more detailed photos, too. This blog has allowed me to see the light and I’ve become a true cervical person (altho’ I don’t say that out aloud in public).
