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…..

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!
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.
