We made this holoscape with pics we downloaded off Google images - spared no expense. https://scontent-b-sjc.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xap1/v/t1.0-9/10690164_10152668439748369_1910634878121521469_n.jpg?oh=0233ea350f859dacb7d4587ed3afb787&oe=5517601B

Penetrative copulation is the default setting for the Gnathostomata! Paper = http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/vaop/ncurrent/full/nature13825.html Summary = http://www.nature.com/news/fossils-rewrite-history-of-penetrative-sex-1.16173 (Note that on the simplified cladogram, the Chondrichthyes branch is mislabelled as Placodermi - and they've credited me as "David Choo")

Off to Craven's Peak

Off to Craven's Peak

About to head off for 2 weeks in the northern Simpson Desert in search of Early-Middle Devonian fish fossils. Will be out of contact until the 1st week of August. We'll take what we can get, but my #1 goal is to find some pituriaspids.
