Welcome to Superoceras, a blog about science and natural history, slightly biased towards paleontology and zoology, but inclusive of all sciences. Started in October of 2009, my goal is to communicate scientific knowledge (and the occasional piece of nonsense) in an informative and entertaining manner. Feel free to contact me with questions, comments, concerns, or criticism at superoceras(at)gmail(dot)com, and follow me on Twitter @Superoceras for all that and more in 140 characters or less!

Alright ladies and gentlemen, the big day is here, and as promised, I present my (joint) submission for the 4th annual "Draw A Dinosaur Day!"

An adolescent male Corythosaurus casuarius, left lateral view.

I imagine this lanky fellow as a sexually mature, yet highly inexperienced and headstrong young buck on his way into his first breeding season. He still has to grow into his legs and tail, and he doesn't have a lot of meat on his bones, but one day he'll fill out, his crest will flush with color, and the ladies will be all over him.

Thanks to Barnum Brown for discovering and naming the species, and Christina for her imaginative color scheme!
