Skimming Fame

Despite being one of the few sauropods known mostly from cranial material, Abydosaurus is not exceptionally famous. One would imagine that the consequences of its discovery and the nature of the remains alone would make the fossils a little bit extra famous actually. We know that it did not, for one reason or another. The lack of popular cultural materials that exist, or do not exist, are unfortunate. We do have a few quality materials that have been seen many times over during this week. One that we have not explored well yet is the National Park Service's page for Dinosaur National Monument. This page does not have a lot of information, but as one of the few sites we have not used, it is a good day to feature it. Please support the parks and visit Dinosaur National Monument if possible.
