"He's the greatest paleontologist ever!"
"A Hero of Renown!"
"Who Slayed the Evil Carnosauria,"
"Who Brought the Cold-Bloods Down!"
"One time a lonely toe bone, was lost without a name,"
"Tom suggested 'arctometatarsal', and the bone offered him a beer"
"Also... he's got great hair! TOMMY!!"
Continuing my ongoing "Adventure-Time" styling of notable figures and places in the world of Paleontology.
The gentlemen below is Dr. Thomas Holtz, Jr, Ph.D. The tagline "King of Dino Geeks" is self-proclaimed by the man himself.
Dr. Holtz is a senior lecturer and vertebrate paleontologist at the University of Maryland's Department of Geology and is the world's foremost authority on tyrannosauroid dinosaurs (T. rex & buddies).
He has written a plethora of books & stared in numerous documentaries: my favorites include his 2007 encyclopedia Dinosaurs, the 2012 tome The Complete Dinosaur 2nd Edition & the 4-part television drama Dinosaur Revolution.
Dr. Holtz is a brilliant scientist with high credibility and a deep love for the natural sciences. On Facebook he can be regularly seen discussing paleontological science, debunking misleading science articles and sharing photos of Dr. Who & Game of Thrones.

ah yes carnosauria, remember the good ol' days of when theropods were spilt into only two groups. Those being BIG SCAERY DIENOSAWRS (carnosaurs) AND WITTLE SMART PEK HUNTERZ coelurosaurs).
I would like to see an episode with him and his T. rex.
He also did a splendid cosplay as Imperial Admiral Reinhard von Lohengramm (my avatar character) once upon a time. (And a whole bunch of other great cosplays thanks to the assistance of his brilliant costume-making genius wife)
Wait, Thomas Holtz likes Doctor Who? *life is completed*
