My fav dino and fam pal'ist
I think I would have to go for pachycephalosaurs as being my
favourite dinosaurs. I have often tried to establish them as being
Glasgow's city emblem, but so far no-one on council has taken me up
on this. I think it is because we don't have any pachy's here (only
their living human equivalents).
As for my famous palaeontologist, I would have to opt for Barrande
who did a lot of work in the Czech Republic. As far as I know, he is
the only palaeontologist with a town named after him - Barrandia
(just outside of Prague).
