Drawing Dinosaurs

palaeoverse:

So this isn’t actually the theme song for PalaeoVerse 

It might be if we can’t come up with anything else, but it’s doubtful

Still, I really liked it, and I wanted to share it with you all! :D

palaeoverse:

This is an excellent piece of music that the incredibly talented raptorcivilization put together for the channel!

Please make this go viral. 
It is so important I don’t even care if you delete what I write here, just help it be seen.

Archosauriformes!

palaeoverse:

Archosauriformes!

What are some Mesozoic species (either dinosaurs, marine reptiles, pterosaurs, or others) that you would like to see get more media exposure?

palaeoverse:

There are lots of such genera, but here’s what came to mind:

  • Rauisuchians (such as Postosuchus and Saurosuchus)
  • Aetosaurs (such as Stagonolepis and Desmatosuchus)
  • Basal archosauriformes (such as Erythosuchus and Proterosuchus)
  • Various pterosaurs (including Thalassodromeus and Dsungaripterus)
  • Rhynchosaurs (such as Hyperodapedon and Isalorhynchus)
  • Enantiornithes (such as Iberomesornis and Sinornis)
  • Various other archosaurs (such as Smok and Dakosaurus)

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN THAT’S HOW YOU DO CONTINUITY 

THIS IS THE FUCKING OPPOSITE OF CONTINUITY 

In the left have Harriet Jones killed an entire spaceship of aliens because she didn’t want the aliens to come back when the Doctor wasn’t around 

The Doctor here is fucking pissed that she did that, he hates genocide and needless killing, he was like “OOOH YAY EVERYBODY LIVES THE SPACESHIP GOES HOME AND NEVER BOTHERS ANYONE AGAIN WOOO!” and then it was all ruined 

He’s warning the aliens away from Earth for their own fucking safety in the terms of humans will kill them, he’s trying to save the aliens 

Enter the right gifset 

here, the Doctor is pissed off at the aliens and wants to protect the humans at all costs 

He’s saying here that he’ll do what Harriet Jones did and kill the aliens if they don’t run 

He’s warning the aliens away from him, not from humans 

HE’S ESSENTIALLY COMPLETELY FLIPPED PERSONALITIES FROM SOMEONE WHO ABHORS GENOCIDE TO SOMEONE WHO THREATENS IT AND EVEN WILLINGLY COMMITS IT (RE: THE SILENCE) 

THE DOCTOR USED TO BE ABOUT PRESERVING LIFE EVERYWHERE AND PROTECTING THE UNIVERSE 

NOW HE’S ABOUT PROTECTING JUST HUMANS AND EARTH AT THE EXPENSE OF EVERYWHERE 

THIS IS THE FUCKING OPPOSITE OF CONTINUITY 

I AM A GIANT SQUID OF ANGER

NOOOOOOOO WHYYYYYYY THIS SCHTUPIDITY! STEVEN MOFFAT YOU IDIOT DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU’RE DOING? DAVIES GET BACK HERE

As far as I can gather, Megaraptoridae is a subgroup or Megaraptora, which hasn’t been definitively placed. It’s either part of Tyrannosauroidae or Neovenatoridae. The clade consists of mid-size, lightweight hunters like Australovenator. Source: Wiki

Thanks, although I’m afraid that’s not quite the definition I was looking for, I’m after the phylogenetic definition. The reason I’m looking for it is because megaraptora was defined by Benson et al. (2010) as:

The most inclusive clade comprising M. namunhuaiquii but not Ch. tashuikouensis, N. saleriiCa. saharicus or A. fragilis (rank-free, stem-based).

That definition works well enough if megaraptorans are neovenatorids, but if they’re tyrannosauroids instead, then by that definition “megaraptora” becomes a junior synonym of coelurosauria. I was curious to see if megaraptoridae was similarly synonymous, or if it remains the same wherever it is placed, which is why I want the phylogenetic definition. I appreciate the effort though, thanks for taking the time to help me out!

In the paper I linked in my other reply, which was the paper that proposed the Megaraptora-Tyrannosauroidea link, they redefined Megaraptora to keep its original contents by adding Baryonyx walkeri, Tyrannosaurus rex, and Passer domesticus to Benson et al.’s definition.

And yes, the PhyloCode does allow definitions to be emended if the contents dramatically change due to a bad definition not accounting for a radically different phylogeny.

Brilliant, that’s exactly what I was looking for, thanks!

WE ARE LOOKING FOR A MAMMAL EXPERT

palaeoverse:

Hello! Our team here at Palaeoverse would really like a mammal-focused paleontologist or just a mammal enthusiast to help us out on our channel. Please message us if you are interested!

Anyone know where to get the definitions of clades? I’ve been hunting around for the definition of “megaraptoridae” but can’t find it.
