Dinosaur. What other word carries such mystery and intrigue?
I’ve been a dinophile for as long as I can remember, and I’m currently working on a creative nonfiction book that attempts to explain why non-avian dinosaurs continue to fascinate us 66 million years after their disappearance.
This Day In Dinosaurs is a dinophile’s calendar; commemorating not only important dates in the science of paleontology, but also in the realm of popular culture.
Whether you’re a professional paleontologist, an amateur dino-artist, or just a Mesozoic enthusiast, I hope you’ll enjoy this ongoing effort to chronicle humanity’s obsession with dinosaurs throughout the year.
