Gigantosaurus by Todd Marshall

I think you mean Giganotosaurus; otherwise that’s a very odd looking Gigantosaurus!

from: "Composition of Mammals" by Wataru Yoshida

ooh, I love jerboas.

Hipitty hop, hipitty hop…

Jerboas can hop faster than a human can run! They don’t walk around like normal gerbils or mice, but walk upright or hop. They’re like little kangaroos!

Beautiful example of an image that would not be possible without illustrators to bring it to life… yes, we can photograph neurons, but not in such dramatic 3D. Props to ktsimage for a beautiful 3D rendering. (via The Learning Brain Gets Bigger—Then Smaller: Scientific American)
