oh yeah, the permian, it's kind of cool I suppose . . . if you like [googles furiously] the diversification of the two groups of amniotes, the synapsids and the sauropsids (reptiles)

apparently all the permian period is in this big basin in west texas now and they suck it up from the ground with big straws like a milkshake and then we burn it in our cars

Honestly it doesn't take a whole lot of effort to avoid a permian but you usually get probated a few times as a warning

Dimetrodon!!! This is a really interesting period to study because of the terabiota but specifically DIMETRODON EVOLVED DURING THIS TIME.

Arguably one of the coolest things to happen during that period.

My kid has a bunch of lil rubber dinos but dimetrodon aka "sail dino" is her fav

Ankylosaurus aka "ouchy dino" is a close second though

I'm not a real Armstrong, but I am a real Worm.

You ever wonder what humans would be like during a permian?? Like. Would we be rocks? Would we be worms? Would we be trees? Would we be the sky/air? Would we be the moon?

Or would we simply be

You and me

I would definitely be plankton. Just, you know, floatin around, eatin stuff, maybe gently caress my plankton friends, make some new plankton, who the gently caress knows, the world is not yet your oyster because Ostreidae had a mass extinction during the Permian era so maybe the world is your Nautilida I dunno

lived there for 12 years can confirm

itís 112 degrees 2/3 of the year and looks like the surface of the moon if the surface of the moon was covered with tumbleweeds

natural history is amazing - i studied a bit of geology along with biology and the whole 'deep time' stuff is both humbling and fascinating imo

there's a spot just down the coast from here where you can see the deep gouge marks that the last glaciers that moved across the country left and even see the direction they were moving in from it

also the ediacaran geological periood is named after the ediacara hills in the flinders ranges here which have some of the oldest fossils of multicellular life that we know of (from 635-541 million years ago)

I'd like to see the Burgess shale fossil beds, but so far the closest I've got is stopping for gas in Field on a motorbike trip. One day I will do more than stop for gas or drive past. One day. As a ghost maybe.

I have seen maybe not those fossils exactly but some real old fossils in situ in the flinders ranges and it's really cool

if anyone has the chance to visit aus and get off the beaten path, I highly recommend the flinders ranges, it's danged beautiful there with extremely interesting geology

agreed - there's also some interesting living biology, i reckon our good friend GaG would love it there cause there are ant-mimicking spiders around in numbers for starters!

also great place if you like looking at stars - some of the best in the world really cause the combo of desert + no light pollution + good southern viewing angle makes for spectacular views of the heavens (chile and parts of south africa maybe similar though, although in the flinders you got less people around so light pollution maybe one area we win at)

went a few times as a kid, and i used to go camping there on occasion and went up there with geology trips and stuff - would love to get back there some day in the not too distant future

e: also if you do make it up there make sure you take a look at arkaroola - trust me

yeah dimetrodon is pretty cool i guess when you're coming from like, t-rex and triceratops, but once you've been in the scene for a bit there's way cooler sail dinos

an interesting dimetrodon fact is that they were not actually dinosaurs but rather synapsids - this means they were more closely related to mammals than to dinosaurs, reptiles and birds!

(mammals themselves are synapsids too)

rad dino tho!

Sherbert Hoover



yeah definitely man. i've been a big fan for a long time.

oh my favorite synapsid fact? probably that Unlike other amniotes, they have a temporal fenestra, an opening low in the skull roof behind each eye, leaving a bony arch beneath each; this accounts for their name.[5]

ah but this leads me to the best and most BYOB dimetrodon fact of all - mammary glands evolved in the carboniferous period SO our good friend the dimetrodon was in fact fully sexual with proto-mammalian titties!!
