Our #summerclub2013 office crew and leads showing off our staff and camper shirts for the summer.
The shirts feature the awesome lion relief from King Nebuchadnezzar II’s palace (photo 3), that’s currently on display in the Mesopotamia exhibit!
When trying to take the photo in front of the actual display (photo 2), we found it was way to dark, so we went up to our Schad Gallery, and took our photo in front of an actual lion. #joys of working in a museum

Ran into my old pal Prestosuchus here at the American Museum of Natural History. #romkidsgoeswhere: New York
Presto and I go way back to #ultimatedinos. He’s one of the most fierce beasts of the early mesozoic era, and even though he’s not a dinosaur, I love him SO much.
I love how he’s quadrupedal. You see this so often today in predators, but it was incredibly rare during the mesozoic era. Prestosuchus gives off the air of an absolutely vicious beast with his massive jaw, but is also kinda cute with his stubby lil’ legs.
- Like many non dinosaurs, the Prestosuchus wikipedia page is a bit lacking but it’s still a good start to learn more.
- There were many amazing animals that lived during the time of dinosaurs that weren’t dinosaurs. Prestosuchus is just one of them. Learn more about these incredible NOT dinosaurs HERE!
- I’ve lined up all my photos of Prestosuchus HERE!
- You can learn more about that weird circle where the eye is HERE. Spoiler, it’s called an sclerotic ring.
EVEN MORE INFO!
- Both specimens above are casts. There was rather wonderful find of a near complete Prestosuchus found in Brazil a few years back. More HERE!
- The top Prestosuchus is from the American Museum of Natural History. I love the texture of the fossi. Really adds to the fierceness.
- The bottom dude *was* our Prestosuchus from the #ultimatedinos Exhibit. This *was* ours as #ultimatedinos has started its world tour, and now resides in Cincinnati! Make sure to check it out if in the area. Learn more about #ultimatedinos at the Cincinnati Museum Center HERE!
- Catch up on the rest my trip to New York HERE.
