Dinosaures: nouvel Album Photo

Newsweek en fait sa une, quelques semaines après NewScientist: les dinosaures sont à la mode.
Et moi qui ne supporte pas de ne pas l'être, j'en fais un Album Photo et je contemple effaré ces bestioles.


NewsweekpetitPhotos issues du journal qui lui-même s'est fourni auprès de l'American Museum of Natural History qui fait une expo là-dessus jusqu'en janvier 2006. Ils ne mourront pas d'ici là.
Les trouvailles, qui viennent notamment de la province de Liaoning (China), ont permis au Museum de dresser la nomenclature suivante (j'ai eu la flemme de traduire, mille excuses, vous comprendez en lisant la liste).
Juste avant, je vous donne ci-dessous cette capture du site de NewScientist avec à gauche l'article sur les dinosaures, et à droite, la pub de Microsoft: ça c'est du contextue!!!
