Caught in pyroclastic flow
This unfortunate little Triassic guy is the reason I put “related” in the title. It was unlucky enough to get flash-fried by a pyroclastic flow – I don’t know where. The other Tiny URL leads to a Scientific American article on “Death by Volcanic Fire.”

Ambrym/Marum Volcano in Vanuatu
Here’s a freebie – just a little YouTube video Geoff Mackley posted of his visit to a volcano. You have probably seen part of it already, but here’s the whole thing. (There’s some cussing, including a couple of uses of the F-bomb.)
