Podcast Show Notes: Episode 3 – Spinosaurus Special

Podcast Show Notes

Welcome to the Spinosaurus Special! As the world reels from the shocking revelations on a certain über-poplar long-snouted theropod, put forth in the laterst paper bt Dr. Thomas Holtz and Dr. Dave Hone, we decided that our third episode should come out early and be all about Spinosaurus! Natee, Marc, Nick and Niels discuss their favourite Spinosaurus reconstructions throughout history, and Marc interviews Dr. Dave Hone on the paper, which appeared on January 7 2021 in Palaeo Electronica.

  • Here’s a link to the Spinosaurus paper by Hone and Holtz. It is open access.
  • Here’s a link to David Hone’s article on his own blog about the paper. Includes the new Bob Nicholls artwork. More relevant Spinosaurus articles can be found on the Archosaur Musings blog.
  • Here’s a link to the Spinosaurus Megasode of Terrible Lizards, a podcast about dinosaurs with Dr. David Hone and Iszi Lawrence. The podcast is highly recommended.
  • Here’s a link to Nick Schofield’s article on the history and evolution of Spinosaurus in science and culture.

    Nice discussion! Rey’s Spinosaurus made an earlier appearance in Henry Gee’s A Field Guide to Dinosaurs from 2003.

      I had a feeling that the Holtzopedia wasn’t its first appearance, based more on the style than anything. Thanks for commenting.
