American Museum of Natural History, Part 10: The Birds are Dinosaurs Exhibit, part 7: 

M A X I M U M   O V E R P O O F

To be completely honest, even though the Tianyulong had pronated hands, that was 100% made up for by the fact that this is the most fluffy thing I’ve ever seen

Like. They didn’t have to fluff it up that much. You can get away with less poof on Tianyulong, based on the fossil. But they went all out. They did not pull any punches. That thing is the Overfloofin. 

I’m kind of disappointed they didn’t mention Kulindadromeus (even though they had time to add in a bit on Yi qi, which was named after Kulinda was), since Kulindadromeus had clearer evidence that these were more likely to be protofeathers rather than just some non-homologous quill thing than Tianyulong had, but, still. 

MAXIMUM OVERPOOF

American Museum of Natural History, Part 4: The Birds are Dinosaurs Exhibit, part 1: Chickenparrot Models

I took a lot of photos of the “Dinosaurs Among Us” Exhibit for obvious reasons. Those obvious reasons are:

1. Thank god this exits 
2. I cried. I openly wept when I went through this. And I went through it three times. I openly wept each time. 

Anyways here’s part one: Chickenparrot Models. @bruh-i-nevre-seen-a-cooler-dino

According to scholars, one in four cowboys in Texas during the golden age of westward expansion was black; many others were Mexican, mestizo, or Native American—a far more diverse group than Hollywood stereotypes would suggest.

The photos in an exciting new exhibit, “Black Cowboy,” at the Studio Museum in Harlem, suggest that that many common conceptions of what an iconic American looks like are wrong. Read more about the exhibit, and see more photos here.
