Gerrothorax

Ludwigsburg is a hop, skip and a jump away from Stuttgart, and when I was there I got bitten bit the palaeo-bug. I met Rainer Schoch, but despite his passion, he wasn’t the one to get me going. Rather, the passionate collectors Richard Leheis, Hubert Dona and others. Next to fantastic plants and archosaurs, one of the cooler finds in the area is Gerrothorax. A very cool new paper has gotten me all nostalgic, and nostalgia is best shared. Let me know what you think, keeping in mind that this image is from … 2009.
