Fossil Faux Pas Royal Tyrrell Museum talk (video)


https: // www.youtube.com/watch?v=DXTdQXviUkE

https: // royaltyrrellmuseum.wordpress.com/2016/04/14/speaker-series-2016-whoops-fossil-faux-pas/


"This talk counts down the top twelve fossil failures over two-hundred years and includes everything from Piltdown Man to plesiosaur heads, chimeric dinosaurs to Charnia. Prepare to be astonished by the audacity, gullibility, and simple carelessness of the people that have made those fossil misidentifications."


NOTE: There are a few factual and nomenclatural glitches in this talk: "Ornithoraptor" for Oviraptor; anatomy of Hallucigenia head has been solved (contrary to talk), etc.
