Lovely Sculpture

There are two videos that I am going to share today. One is a WizScience video; meaning that it is one of the computer readings of facts in video form.

The second video is, arguably, much cooler and more entertaining. This video shows a sculptor's interpretation of the soft tissues based on the cast skull of Araripesuchus. The artist is Tyler Keillor and the sculpture itself was made for the National Geographic special When Crocs Ate Dinosaurs. The other croc sculptures in the special were also created in the University of Chicago lab and, if one watches the special, you can see all of the different models.
