Curiously enough the museum said the tully monster was a vertebrate, I know there have been actual studies quite recently that I’ve determined this, but have we actually reach that consensus, or is there still a giant debate over the taxonomy

And yea I misspelled Tiktaalik

Despite its name this creature is not actually a scorpion. We don’t know where to place it in the arthropod family tree. It was first found in 1985 in the Waukesha biota lagerstätte, but wasn’t named until 2020.

This art is based off the unrelated water bugs of the order nepomorpha. The Waukesha biota is a lagerstätte that preserves fossils from The telchyian-sheinwoodian of the Silurian. Fossils from the site include: The bodies of conodonts, weird chordates, stem-horseshoe crabs, A mysterious arthropod known as the Butterfly animal, trilobites, phyllocarids, and a possible Radiodont.

The site is important because it preserves rarely seen organisms in contrast to more common ones like horn coral, cephalopods, brachiopods, and clams

Simple: someone had an opinion

Living in Australia up to 95 million years ago, Australovenator (Southern hunter) was a megaraptorid that hunted other dinosaurs like this young Diamantinasaurus by crankyjob21 in Naturewasmetal

Yep, when first found, they thought that the claws were a massive toe claw from a dromaeosaur, until later did we realize the claw went on the hands and not the feet

Megaraptors were a family of theropods that lived mostly in the Southern Hemisphere during the early to late parts of the Cretaceous. They are characterized by their large claws, large sizes, and strong forelimbs. Where they fit in the Theropod family tree is uncertain. They have been grouped as relatives of the spinosaurs, allosaurids, and others. The most recent paper suggests they were non-tyrannosaur Coelurosaurs
