Charonosaurus © Luis V. ReyDuring preparation of yesterdays hadrosaur item, we visited Luis V. Rey's Dinosaurs & Paleontology Art Gallery. Luis has an illustration of a Chinese lambeosaurine hadrosaur named Charonosaurus, after Charon the ferryman on the mythological River Styx. China has been the source of much new fossil information, including Baby Louie in yesterday's item, and Luis has two [1][2] pages devoted to that area.

The album Honkin' on Bobo was a recent Aerosmith release, the name said to be an old bluesmen's expression for forte harmonica playing. Reading the description of Charonosaurus' capabilities we thought it may have been capable of drowning out even hugely amplified bad boys Steven Tyler and Aerosmith. That may be a good or bad thing, depending on your taste in music, and dinosaurs too.
