The follies of Richard Owen's youth

Hilarious satire on Richard Owen.

P.S 0: I think the animal is Postosuchus. Does anybody think otherwise?
P.S: Won't strike you as funny if you don't know Richard Owen

From Pete Von Sholly's Extremely Weird Tales. through palaeoblog

A new species of colour-changing snake has been discovered in Borneo.

Does this mean that colour-changing among reptiles is more basal than thought earlier or is it just convergent evolution?

Waiting for the folks from DML to discuss this

Most cold-blooded animals exhibit some degree of background adaptation. The minimum requirement, it has been observed, is that the animal needs vision and a variety of chromatophores. Mammals have just the melanocytes.
