Meet Ron. He’s the flying ace. He’ll swoop from the sky, dive into the water, and swim anywhere for a shiny fish. 🙂
Rrr- just how do you pronounce that? I wasn’t 100% sure on that myself, so I looked it up on Youtube…
There, mystery solved. 🙂 I wonder if there’s one for all the really hard paleo-critter names out there. I may have to include something like this from now on until I figure out a better system.
Oh, and before you ask, yes, there is evidence that pterosaurs can swim. 🙂 Ron here seems to spend most of his time in water, which might be why we have so many perfect fossils of this little guy. 🙂
He’s fast though. It took a whole bucket of fish to entice him to come over for a quick chat.
And there he goes! Ah well, if you want to know more about these guys, I know a pretty awesome blog post written by the great pterosaur expert, Mark Witton. It has lots of pretty pictures too!
Caught on Critter Cam! Dippy vs. Ball is published!
It’s now a little ebook on Amazon for $1.99. Published right at the end of January, as planned. 😀
$1.99 is the lowest price I could make it until I can figure out how everyone is pricing their books for 99 cents. So if anyone has any ideas how to do that, I’m all ears. 🙂
If you like what you see and want to help me out, I would be absolutely over the moon if you jogged over to Amazon and bought a copy. 😉
You’ll find that I left a link for the free, printable Critter Cards within the pages. My special thank you for spending a little time with me (and extra special thank you for leaving an Amazon review).
- finishing the updated homepage illustration
- finishing the storyboard for the picture book
- get Dippy vs. Ball ready for a printed copy, with more illustrations, Dippy’s silly game against the ball, and bonus research pages. 😀
Coming Next Week…
He looks tough, but once you get to know him he’s loyal to the core…and more of a softie really. 🙂
Share your guess in the comments! He’s one of the critters over on the critter page. 🙂

so Ron’s fallings on the color Maroon are what?
I’m not sure I understand the question. He’s diving for fish, or something shiny that looks like fish. 😀
