Follow Gabe on @paleoparadox for more paleontology and see him and the crew of @cosplayforscience for science outreach and education. - Q: What first drew you to science? A: I was a nosy child, I had questions about everything. My parents tried their best, but they couldn’t answer everything. They took me to museums and let me watch shows like @BillNye the Science Guy and Magic School Bus. Science fiction also fueled my imagination, watching The Empire Strikes Back as a four year old I was curious about the biology of Tauntauns and how did lightsabers work?! - Q: What are you doing now, and what is the most enjoyable part of your job? A: Today, I am a paleontologist and collections manager at the Raymond M. Alf Museum of Paleontology, Claremont, CA. It’s my job to take care of 200,000 fossil specimens. I also do some research, where my focus is fossil marine mammals, especially desmostylians, a weird, hippo-like animal! I would say teaching is the most enjoyable part of my job. Getting the chance to find new and fun ways to get people to enjoy science and make it accessible to all is awesome. Seeing people at events smile and say how cool something is just puts a giant smile on my face and makes it all worth it. - Q: What has been the biggest challenge in your career to date? A: A combination of two things, depression and imposter syndrome. Paleontology wasn’t always my career path. After graduating as a premed, things got bad, but I eventually found my passion in paleontology and education. A career change in my mid-twenties was probably the best decision of my life, but it didn’t cure everything. Managing my depression can be very tiring sometimes. Some days I just don’t have the energy to do anything which really affects my job and my research. Luckily, I have a great doctor and an amazing support group in my family, friends, and colleagues to help me. - Q: What are you hopeful of in the future? A: My hope for the future is to see a world where critical thinking comes first. A world where science is not only appreciated, but understood by all. It might be sappy and little naïve, but I spend a lot of time in the dark, so I picture a world full of light.

Name: Deinocheirus mirificus Remains: Complete skull, majority of skeleton and minority of two others. Size: 11.5 meters (38 feet), 5 tonnes Anatomy: Skull not as small relative to skeleton as in other ornithomimosaurs. Slender skull with long beak flaring out into a duckbill. Lower jaw deep, with weak jaw muscles. Absent of teeth. Stout neck. Vertebral spines present, arcing up from the scapula, and back down at hip. Large arms (2.5 meters long or 9 feet), rather slender, with hook like claws. Toes end with blunt, hoof-like claws. Geological placement: Late Cretaceous, late Campanian and/ or early Maastrichtian. Distribution and formation: Mongolia; Nemegt. Habitat: Well watered woodland with seasonal rain, Winters cold. Behaviour: omnivorous, probably feeding on softer plants and fish. Arms used to forage. Main enemy Tyrannosaurus bataar. Claws probably used to defend itself. Comments: Discovery of nothing more than it's large arms in 1960 caused massive confusion. Shared it's habitat with Therizinosaurus. #dinosaur #dinosaurs #mongolia #cretaceous #prehistory #paleontology #jurassicpark #fossil #fossils

A #FossilCollection we made at #BigBrookPark in Monmouth County, NJ, a great place to look for Late Cretaceous Period fossils by sifting through gravel in the stream. Check out njfossils.net for more info and directions. #Fossils #SharkTeeth #CretaceousPeriod #Paleontology #FossilDig #WhenDinosaursRoamedNJ

Happy #TrilobiteTuesday!! These aquatic arthropods roamed the seas for 300 million years, and their fossils have been found on every continent. Some were only 1 cm, others grew up to 70 cm (~28 in) long! Today, they’re extinct, but their relatives live on: insects, crabs, spiders, and scorpions are just a few examples of modern arthropods. 🐜🦀🕷🦂 #didyouknow #biologyfacts #biologynerd #paleontology #trilobite #trilobites #fossils #extinct #arthropod #fieldtripchicago

Throwback to 2013 when I was in Denver for GSA! These tracks are primarily from Ornithopods and some are from a carnivorous theropod. P.s. all the info I just put came from the sign there! #notanexpert #geology #geologyrocks #throwback #dinosaursofinstagram #dinosaur #paleontology

#paleontology. This is a fuxhianhuiid, a primitive creature that had limbs under its head.

Картина палео художника Велизара Семиновского. Мегадолоды (Megadolodus) спасаются от гигантского аллигатора пурусзавра (purussaurus). Существовали пурусзавры с середины по конец миоценового отдела неогенового периода 15-5 млн лет назад. Достигали длинны в 10-15 метров и весили до 5 тонн. Являются одними из крупнейших крокодилов за всю историю планеты #paleoart #art #artwork #paleontology #pictures #imagies #картинки #художники #животные #animals #carnivore #primal #prehistoric #nature #naturalhistory #палеонтология #природа #nature #predator #хищник #crocodile #alligator #reptile

Ankylosaurid skull. This specimen is a well preserved skull of an armored dinosaur. It was found in Nemegt formation in Mongolia during the joint Soviet-Mongolian paleontological expeditions. The original specimen (PIN 3142/250) is stored at the Paleontological Institute in Moscow. This skull was originally described as Tarchia gigantea (Tumanova, 1977; 1987). But recently it was assigned to another genus of Mongolian ankylosaurid - #Saichania (Arbour et al., 2014). In 2017 P.Penkalski and T.Tumanova published a paper in which they considered this skull as a new species of Tarchia - Tarchia teresae. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - #prehistoricanimals #fossils #paleontology #dinosaurs #dinosaur #dinosauria #динозавры #динозавр #ornithishia #птицетазовые #ankylosaurs #ankylosauridae #анкилозавры #tarchia #tarchiagigantea #tarchiateresae #saichania #saichaniachulsanensis #mongolia #монголия #nemegt #немегту #paleontologicalinstitute #paleontologicalmuseum #pinrus #палеонтологическиймузей #палеонтологическийинститут

Coffee☕ and geology🌎 (@coffeeandgeology)


Buongiorno ragazze! Riemergo dal mio studio matto e disperato per mostrarvi i miei appunti di paleontologia. Questa materia mi sta piacendo molto, nonostante sia molto impegnativa (e ci sia un sacco di biologia 😷🤢). Come è andata la settimana scorsa per voi? La mia è stata infernale, mi devo ancora riprendere. Sto studiando per gli esami di febbraio, ce la farò a passarli? Chi lo sa😅 Good morning girls! I emerge from my crazy and desperate study to show you my palaeontology notes. I am very interested in this subject, although it is very heavy (and there is a lot of biology 😷🤢). How did you last week go? Mine was infernal, I still have to recover from it. I'm studying for the February exams, will I be able to pass them? Who knows #uni #university #unilife #stationery #subdued #mrwonderful #agenda #study #studygram #college #collegelife #cartopazzia #student #collegestudent #unistudent #geology #unimi #paleontology #exams #sessioneinvernale
