Bizarre Zoology Has Moved

Various photographs taken by the author, with each representing one of the blog’s focal points of Zoology,
Cryptozoology, Paleontology, and Paleoanthropology, respectively.

As you have probably seen if you looked through the archives here recently, Blogger has become largely incompatible. As a result, Bizarre Zoology has moved to a WordPress domain, which can be found here. I hope to see you there!

Have A Happy Maniraptoran-Eating Holiday!

If it weren't for them there would be no Bizarre Zoology blog! Pictured are the gerenuk, the saola, the saiga antelope, the grey-headed flying fox, the pangolin, the platypus, the aardvark, the solenodon, the striped skunk (which I recently learned are apparently not mustelids after all...say what?), and the streaked tenrec. (Image credit to the wonderful Peppermint Narwhal graphic design company)
The preparations to the relocated Bizarre Zoology blog are not yet complete, so here's my sincere wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving. On this day of gratitude, appreciate the wonderful natural world around you, and please send thoughts and prayers to the many less fortunate.

And, in case you've forgotten...

A Note Regarding the Current Hiatus

A remarkable skeletal restoration of Quetzalcoatlus northropi, that giraffe-sized pterosaur of terrestrial-stalking fame, photographed by yours truly at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History this past summer.
Despite my attempts to be as prolific a writer as a teenager engrossed in highschool can be, this blog has experienced a hiatus in publications since May 1st. This lapse in writing has spurred some concern among viewers as to whether my blogging career was finished. While the more important obligations of my life have made it difficult for me to make any progress on the numerous articles currently in draft, quite an important change is on the horizon for this blog. In case you haven't been following the Bizarre Zoology Facebook page, this writing platform is set for relocation. Moving this site from what has been a successful venue was a decision preceded by much conflicted thought, but the technical difficulties recently experienced with the Blogger domain have prompted this choice. I will wait until the new location of this blog is more significantly prepared to reveal anything further, but for now please continue to check back and I thank you for your viewership.
Even when I don't have the time to communicate my current zoological musings through this blog I'm delving into related literature, photographing inner-city theropods (Columba livia), and marvelling at colossal bear skeletons (Arctodus simus).
