TetZooCon 2015 and Everything Dinosaur

TetZooCon 2015 and Everything Dinosaur

It’s full steam ahead with just a few days to go to the second annual TetZooCon, a convention dedicated to Tetrapod Zoology and what an amazing day it’s going to be.  The London Wetland Centre is the venue and on Saturday 14th November, the great and the good in the TetZoo-verse will descend on Barnes, London SW13 to enjoy a variety of speakers covering subjects as diverse as Pterosaurs to Pygmy Elephants?  Keeping to the all things beginning with “P” theme, renowned palaeoartists Mark Witton, Bob Nicholls (he of the famous Nigersaurus eye-lashes illustration, ask him about this whilst you are there) and John Conway will be holding a special palaeoart workshop.  If you have ever wondered how artists are able to create such stunning illustrations of long, extinct creatures now’s your chance to find out.

Organised by Darren Naish, vertebrate palaeontologist, acclaimed science writer and all round good guy, and the super talented John Conway, Saturday’s event provides an amazing opportunity to meet top academics and to learn all about the comings and goings in terms of some of the latest thinking regarding the astonishing creatures that share our planet, plus of course, lots of information on those animals that have dropped out of the gene pool.  Animals such as the Ichthyosaurs which will be covered in a talk given by the University of Southampton’s Jessica Lawrence-Wujek.  So if “fish lizards” are your thing, head down to the London Wetland Centre on the 14th.

Tea and coffee are provided, and lunch can be purchased at the nearby Water’s Edge Cafe.  TetZooCon promises to be the best thing to hit this part of London since the Ice Age!

Commenting on the event, a spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur explained:

“Events like TetZooCon provide those with a general interest in science with a marvellous opportunity to converse with leading scientists, artists and science writers.  Sadly, these opportunities, are few and far between and it is great to see such a convention taking place.  We wish the organisers and everyone attending the very best and we look forward to hearing more about this exciting event.”

We note that the day is to be concluded with a visit to a local hostelry, a trip to the Red Lion Pub!  Fantastic planning Darren et al, choosing an inn with a Tetrapod connection.   Sounds like it is going to be a great day!
