    These are some highlights from my trip to the Smithsonian Natural History Museum in Washington, D.C. last weekend. Place was a gold mine of photogenic specimens!


    Allosaurus, apex predator of the Jurassic savannas. Hence its nickname "lion of the Jurassic".


    Ankylosaurus, the last and largest of the club-tailed ankylosaurids in North America. Think of it as being like a Cretaceous dinosaurian tank.


    Diplodocus, one of many sauropod species found in the Jurassic-age Morrison Formation in North America. Sauropods like this can be very difficult to photograph in full unless you walk way back.


    A number of fossilized maniraptorans, the subgroup of theropod dinosaurs known to have possessed feathers. Modern birds, in fact, are descended from the only maniraptorans that were able to survive the end-Cretaceous extinction!


    An American mastodon, a distant relative of elephants which roamed the forested areas of North America during the Pleistocene epoch. They would have had a shorter stature and lower foreheads than their contemporaries the mammoths, the latter being a sister genus to modern Asian elephants.


    Stegosaurus fending off the predatory Ceratosaurus (unfortunately I did not get the former's spiky thagomizer within this picture). Ceratosaurus was another meat-eater in the Jurassic ecosystem, although it seems to have preferred a wetter habitat than the savanna-dwelling Allosaurus.


    Triceratops, the most iconic (as well as one of the last) ceratopsians of Cretaceous North America. These three-horned, elephant-sized herbivores would have made a most rewarding meal for any tyrannosaur open to a challenge!


    Back in the Late Cretaceous, when subtropical jungle grew over much of the American West, it was Tyrannosaurus rex that would have ruled as top predator. Its main weapon would have been its bone-crushing jaws, the most powerful of any terrestrial animal known to have walked on land, but its seemingly diminutive forelimbs might have functioned like meathooks grasping onto struggling prey.


    They don't call Tyrannosaurus "the prize fighter of antiquity" for nothing!

    More photos I took at the museum here.

    Knowledge is consciousness of reality. Reality is the sum of the laws that govern nature and of the causes from which they flow.

    Our national parks are designed to preserve the natural enviroment of a beautiful area. When I visited yellowstone np, there were plenty of signs warning people to stay a safe distance from wildlife and were ignored.

    Dog loses 100 pounds!

    https://6abc.com/5437562/

    In March 2018, Kai, a golden retriever in Alberta, Canada, who weighed about 170 pounds, was taken to the vet to be put down.

    Instead, the vet decided to contact Misfits of Alberta Animal Rescue, who matched Kai with a foster mom. The vet told his foster mom, Pam Heggie, that his weight was making it really difficult for him to get around.

    Today, Kai has maintained a healthy 70 pounds for months and Heggie has adopted him.



    "He shows you how to do a really big task literally one day at a time," Heggie told "Good Morning America." "He doesn't worry about yesterday, he doesn't worry about tomorrow, he just focuses on what needs to be done today and he does it. We can learn a lot from dogs."

    Kai and Heggie celebrated the results of the incredible transformation on "Good Morning America" on Friday.



    Heggie said she doesn't know much about Kai's history before the day she started fostering him, other than that he was supposed to be put down. Heggie said she thinks the reason the vet decided to find a different path for Kai is his personality, saying, "He was always extremely loving. Extremely."

    Kai had an uphill battle to climb. A vet called him the most overweight animal he'd ever seen. That first day at home, Heggie said it took Kai 20 minutes just to climb the stairs.



    Heggie worried at first whether she'd be able to help him.

    "I was worried about everything," she said. "I was worried I would just wake up and he wouldn't be there anymore."

    Heggie took Kai for three walks a day, no matter the weather in Canada.

    "Snow, rain, sleet, boiling -- we went out every single day," she said.

    She said each walk got a little bit longer. They also incorporated water therapy to strengthen his legs.



    Heggie said the reason she documented Kai's journey on a Facebook page is because she hopes it spreads a message about the importance of motivation.

    "No matter what big goals you set, if you're just consistent and you do one little piece at a time, you'll get there," she said.
