Come see the dinosaurs

Dr. Darren Naish reviews newest book

We can never get enough dinosaurs.  Illustrator Greg Paul has given us many of them, taking dinosaur art in new directions - some of them controversial.  Naish's blog here is a review of Paul's Dinosaurs - A Field Guide.  Paul is famous for his meticulous visual reconstructions, and some examples of his artwork and that of other leading dino-illustrators is included here.  Naish feels Paul has dinosaur taxonomy VERY wrong. Not being any sort of expert in that, I'll set it aside and recommend dino-lovers read this blog post to learn about some of the current controversies as well as the differing ways of portraying our favorite extinct animals.
