Terrible Lizards is a podcast about Dinosaurs with Dr David Hone and Iszi Lawrence.

    Bonus Histology Episode

    Bonus Histology Episode

    Fossil bones are those that have turned to rock but that means that the original cellular structures are in there and these can reveal and whole host of information about the growth and physiology of ancient animals. Yara Haridy takes us through these and how we actually extract this information from bones that are hundreds of millions of years old.

    Paleoart with Natee Puttapipat and Danielle Dufault

    Paleoart with Natee Puttapipat and Danielle Dufault

    With every big new paper or museum exhibition there will be artwork depicting dinosaurs as actual living animals. Today we chat to two artists who specialise in dinosaurs and make their living from producing images of these animals. They are Danielle Dufault who works for the Royal Ontario Museum and Natee Himmapaan who is an independent artist in London.

    Torosaurus with Jay Foreman

    Torosaurus with Jay Foreman

    Is Triceratops not all it seems and is it in fact just part of a growth series which results in the largest and oldest animals becoming another dinosaur entirely in Torosaurus? The answer is no, but the reasons why this was proposed and why it’s not the case are interesting. We joined by Jay Foreman who asks… well lots but I don’t know what questions Iszi edited in when I wrote this.

    Heterodontosaurs with Bec Hill

    Heterodontosaurs with Bec Hill

    Another set of animals for which we have some superb skeletons and lots of interesting features that are potentially very revealing about the evolution of dinosaurs in general (and ornithischians in particular) and yet Heterodontosaurs get very little love. Here at Terrible Lizards want to stand up for the little fun dinos too. Plus comedian, author and artist Bec Hill has a question about sauropod feet with a twist. https://bechillcomedian.com

    The Big Bird Debate with Suzy Buttress

    The Big Bird Debate with Suzy Buttress

    Iszi is in Dave's house! How did birds go from a groups that had no obvious evolutionary home to some early flirtations with dinosaurs, to a place around the reptile tree and then eventually settled to being Dinosaurs? Appropriately, our guest this week is Suzy from the Casual Birder podcast and she wants to ask Dave all about dinosaur eyes and their colours and shapes.

Great Dino podcast!

Family friendly, loads of info and really shows off the way of thinking about dinosaurs. Brings in lots of comparisons to modern animals. I love it! 😀

Very interesting and informative, but….

…..the show is a bit spoiled by the irritating female presenter who keeps yelling unfunny comments (often in daft voices) over the top of the other hosts in a desperate attempt to be wacky. Have a listen to “The Rest is History” for a lesson on how to combine humour with intellectual subject matter (review resubmitted as the previous one didn’t appear)
