The 70th annual Society of Vertebrate Paleontology meeting ended on Wednesday, but before returning to more regular coverage of all things dinosaur I wanted to share a few snapshots from the meeting’s welcome reception in Pittsburgh’s famous Carnegie Museum of Natural History.
The skull of the Carnegie's Allosaurus skeleton. In the background you can see a small part of the beautiful Jurassic mural by Bob Walters and Tess Kissinger.
A cast of the skull of Diabloceratops, which was formally described just this year.
A baby Apatosaurus among the ferns in the Jurassic dinosaurs exhibit.
A juvenile Camarasaurus.
A Tyrannosaurus rex protects its kill from a rival (off camera) in the museum's Cretaceous exhibit.
A Ceratosaurus runs down a fleeing Dryosaurus in an alcove along the Jurassic exhibit.
