Dinosaur of the Month-Dimorphodon marconyx

The dinosaur for this month is Dimorphodon marconyx.
This dinosaur was first discovered in 1828 by Mary Anning. The name Dimorphodon refers to ‘two-form tooth’ while the species name species macronyx refers to the large claws on the forelimbs. This particular dinosaur had a large head and pointed teeth.  Dimorphodon marconyz is found primarily in Lyme Regis, Dorset, UK in which the site dates back to Lower Jurassic Period - 200 million years ago. Most of the fossils found at this site are from marine reptiles of the Lower Jurassic Period.

General Biology
Due to the similarity to the dinosaurs that are pterosaurs scientist presume that the Dimorphodon marconyx laid eggs and also from fossil found in Germany of psteosaurs indicate that theses species had fast development in which they could fly away and take care of themselves. This aspect makes them unique because birds born today are helpless state for long period of time in comparison.

This species had the ability to walk on all fours. Also the cranium was developed in areas of spatial awareness and balance indicating the possibility of flight.

1,000 tigers killed for body parts in decade, report finds

This is an article I found today that is truly heart breaking. I didn't included the images I included a link if you want to see the full article.
Tiger skins like this one dominate seizures in India and Nepal and are relatively frequent in China, Russia and Indonesia, according to the wildlife monitoring group TRAFFIC.

Body parts from more than 1,000 wild tigers have been seized over the past decade, crimes that are adding to the extinction crisis faced by the species whose numbers are estimated at around just 3,200 worldwide, a wildlife monitoring network reported Tuesday.

"Parts of between 1,069 and 1,220 tigers were seized in 11 of the 13 tiger range countries — or an average of 104 to 119 animals per year," TRAFFIC said in a report ahead of an international meeting later this month to protect the species.

India was highest on the list, followed by China and Nepal.

"Given half the world’s tigers live in India, it’s no real surprise the country has the highest number of seizures," report author Pauline Verheij said in a statement.
"With parts of potentially more than 100 wild Tigers actually seized each year," she added, "one can only speculate what the true numbers of animals are being plundered."

Parts of at least 1,000 tigers were seized in 11 range countries over the last decade.

Tiger smuggling ranges from from complete skins, skeletons and even whole animals — live and dead — to bones, meat, claws, teeth, skulls, penises and other body parts, TRAFFIC said.
The parts are used by various cultures for decoration, in traditional medicines and even as good luck charms.

"Clearly enforcement efforts to date are either ineffective or an insufficient deterrent," stated Mike Baltzer, leader of WWF’s Tigers Alive initiative.

"Not only must the risk of getting caught increase significantly, but seizures and arrests must also be followed up by swift prosecution and adequate sentencing," he said.Besides poaching, the other main pressure on tigers is habitat loss.Some 100,000 tigers are thought to have been around a century ago, TRAFFIC said.

TRAFFIC is a joint program of WWF and the IUCN, the International Union for Conservation of Nature.
