This is of passing interest. It would have been more interesting if we could have harvested DNA and created our own modern version. We could have put them on an island in the Caribbean. What could go wrong?
(link) You can’t even see its bones, yet scientists are hailing it as perhaps the best-preserved dinosaur specimen ever unearthed. That’s because, 110 million years later, those bones remain covered by the creature’s intact skin and armor.
Indeed, the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology in Alberta, Canada recently unveiled a dinosaur so well-preserved that many have taken to calling it not a fossil, but an honest-to-goodness “dinosaur mummy.”

Ah yes, the Congressional Boomerang Throw, the yearning for impeachment. Everything that they try to do to President Trump comes back to bite them. They’ve never learned that spitting into the wind is unwise. They’re working diligently to return both President Trump and control of the legislature to the Republicans. I cheer them on.
Oh, please, not until after Halloween.
Antelope are one of God’s creatures that I can watch endlessly. Elk look nice but they just graze most of the time.
It’s said (mostly by crows) that black bird lives matter. I’ve seen the same thing with their lust for revenge if one of their own has been wronged. There are some crows the size of eagles at the White Wolf Mine and we have crossed paths when they got into the trash when the wind blew the lid open. I didn’t kill them, but was sorely tempted to do so and hang the carcass in a tree as a message to all of them.
My friend, the Buddhist holy man, has told me that he can speak with crows. I didn’t know there was a smartphone ap that converted crow to English and back the other way. It explains a great deal. The presence of crows in your yard suggests that they are your familiars… and if there were bats as well that hung in your belfry, well, it would confirm what the neighbors say.
They ruin the seasons. Costco was stocking the Christmas line-up in August. Stop, just stop.
Picky-picky-picky. I will still call them antelope and I’ll call Rocky Mountain Goats, Rocky Mountain Goats, not antelope. Persecute this poor old man if you must.
They have an 8′ one up at the Terry Bison Ranch in Wyoming. Big enough to saddle, which they did. And all the display signs warn “Do NOT Try This At Home”!
Strange creatures that some say are distantly related to the Dreaded Trojan Rabbit…..Quick! Bring the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch!! I think I hear one out in the bushes…..
Jim quotes Monte Python (directed at DRJIM) – “Pie Iesu domine, dona eis requiem”
Don’t try and take him alone, DRJIM. Have Pebbles the wonder dog ready to back your play.
Old NFO – Ah, the elusive Jackalope… 🙂 Great pics!
They’re cruel and aggressive predators, which is why the pioneers hunted them nearly to extinction. Their flesh is said to be as sweet as unicorn meat (and almost as sweet as liberal tears).
Larry – I’ve got a pic I saw somewhere of the even more elusive catalope. A strange and eerily beautiful little beast. No way to post it, though.
See photo (right) of a catalope. Extremely rare and very dangerous.
Socrates got that right.
Talking of philosophy… those photographs are stunning. You should sit by that lake and write. Now you just need a wolf to come from behind the trees in the dawn mist.
A Warren-Clinton presidency. Now there's a recipe for disaster. Their election would prove that you can indeed fool many of the people all of the time.
Nice photos. Some folks seem to believe that Arizona is all desert and that certainly isn't the case. A similar situation exists here in that many believe that the entire state is as flat as a table top. They certainly haven't been to the Gypsum Hills among other locations.
Rather than the Caribbean, put the resurrected dinosaurs on an island off the coast of Asia. If something goes wrong, the Japanese have a lot of experience dealing with that sort of thing.
An Intact Dinosaur
I thought you were going to refer to We Denizens…
We could have put them on an island in the Caribbean.
I nominate Haiti!
Well, Hispaniola… sorry, D.R. you'll just have to take one for the team.
I think what they were referring to, is when you watch someone to make sure the commit suicide correctly.
Will life insurance companies still insure Clinton associates?
Listened to the President's "Helo Presser" this morning…the media fully not getting how marginalized they are, reminded me of this from Animal House:
[wack!] "Thank you sir, may I have another!"
A good post; I particularly like the photo of the catalope.
Thanks for the post.
