Curator's Coffee - Bisti Beast and Tyrannosaur Evolution by Dr. Tom Williamson
The Bisti Beast, Bistahieversor sealeyi, is a new genus and species of tyrannosaur known only from New Mexico. It is one of numerous tyrannosaurs, including Tyrannosaurus rex, that were the top predators of the northern hemisphere during the Late Cretaceous.  Recent discoveries of new tyrannosaurs such as the Bisti Beast have shown that tyrannosaurs had a long and fascinating evolutionary history.

Dr. Williamson.is Curator of Paleontology at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science.  He is conducting a research and active field-based program focused primarily on Late Cretaceous and Paleogene vertebrates to interpret their evolutionary history. The hub for much of this work is the San Juan Basin of northwestern New Mexico which contains an incredibly rich and diverse vertebrate fauna. Dr. Williamson's degrees are from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst (B.S. Geology, 1986) and the University of New Mexico (M.S. Geology, 1989; Ph.D. Earth and Planetary Sciences, 1993). He has been a Curator of Paleontology at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science since 1994.
