Riparovenator and Ceratosuchops – Chris Barker and Darren Naish
Just like the start of series 3, we are kicking off the new series with a special on a new research paper (of which Dave is one of the authors) which is out today! In it, two new, large, predatory dinosaurs from the UK are named and both are part of the spinosaur group! Obviously it’s all very exciting, but to avoid things being too Dave-centric we have invited on two other palaeontologists from the paper, Chris Barker and Darren Naish. As a perfect example of the research process and scholarly work they present lots of ideas and information for Iszi to pick through while also cutting each other off and disagreeing over things too. But still, it should be a great insight into these new animals and the research that has been done on them.
Here’s the new paper itself: www.nature.com/articles/s41598-021-97870-8
