Journal
Colombian horse!
It has been a while since I wrote my last journey. Well, now I want to invite you to see some of my process about the reconstructions of horses - more specifically the Equus genus in South America.
As I upload some time ago, I made first a diagram of the head of one of these species of Equus, called E. lasallei. Despite the fact of have the largest skull of a SA Equus in the Pleistocene, is not very well known. Reading the recent literature I've found the cause of it: is difficult to compare with other Pleistocene horses since that many diagnostic anatomical features are located in the bones of the toes of these animals, which are absent in the Colombian records. The skull of Cerro Gordo, in which I based the diagram, apparently was accompanied for more remains, but these were lost during the tragic revolts that, after the assasination of the political leader Jorge Eliécer Gaitán, destroyed most of the city of Bogotá during A

Welcome everyone! My name is Diego

I'm a spanish engineering student who also works in the Wikipedia. My work will be focused mostly on animals, living or extinct, in order to upload some of my works to the encyclopedia and illustrate the site properly.

You can also check my Flickr site, where I post my photos. Enjoy! www.flickr.com/photos/10140533…

Hi everyone! You may have noted that I've been quite inactive during the last 3 months. One reason is that I've been busy with my final degree project, although I've also spent time doing new versions of old drawings I made for the wikipedia. If you want to see them, go to the Ichthyornis, Messelirrisor and Gastornis pages in the wikipedia.

However, the main reason of my absence in DeviantArt is that I've been working in a blog-like webpage with a group of friends during the last months. It is called "Empíricamente Cierto", and (unfortunately for most of my watchers) is written in spanish. If you are a spanish speaker and you love science and technology I recommend you to visit us or to give us a like in Facebook. We have already written about many topics, including exoplanets, ancient egyptian scientists and invisibility.

Webpage: www.empiricamentecierto.com
Facebook: www.facebook.com/empci…

There is a bit more of spam though. A friend of mine has also started a blog, and I'm also promoting it. It's name is "The Smart Student", and it focuses on the college student life. If you are studying at college/university or you are going to start it soon, this blog gives you lots of tips that can make your student's life a lot easier. This blog is written in english, so everyone can have a look!
