He is also the favored food of the theropod dinosaur Monolophosaurus, from which, Captain Hook-like, he is constantly fleeing. You can read more about his past exploits and research here. He occasionally co-leads Sinofossa tours, which are spectacular paleontological experiences for everyone -- many of the pictures below are from these tours. He welcomes you to use photos from his SmugMug site for your personal purposes as long as you give appropriate credit.
