Paleo doodles! Today I sat next to my sister at church and she told me what to draw.

Plesiosaurus inspecting some crinoids growing on a floating log in the open ocean. There is fossil evidence that large colonies of crinoids covered driftwood, providing the basis for thriving communities at the surface of the water.

Our friend Diadectes was an early Permian amphibian, albeit one with very reptile-like features. It was a squat, round thing that could be roughly 5 to 10 feet long, with some of the doofiest teeth I have ever seen.

I want one.

Finally my sister wanted to see a pterosaur with a monocle, so of course I obliged.
