The most (and least) read posts of 2022

2021. A sec

2023. Where did 2022 go! We wish all of our readers a very safe, healthy and happy 2023. It has been a busy year for us all, with new jobs, new books, and even a new country! We haven’t written as many posts as we would have liked, but we will endeavour to bring you more wonderful beasts that shared the planet with us.

We are almost at the big 200th blog post! I have a feeling that 2023 will be a very special year.

We have added a couple of things where readers can support us if they wish to.

As 2023 begins, we would like to continue our tradition of sharing our top 5 blog posts of 2022, and also the 5 least read blog posts of 2022, because it’s good to give a boost to these less popular posts, even though they are just as amazing as the popular ones!

Least read posts of 2022:

A test of time: They may not be as sexy as cave lions or giant killer birds, but microfossils are cool! Surprisingly, they can tell us an awful lot about the past environments.

From Russia with Love: I may be a little biased, but this is one of my favourite posts! Immerse yourself in the wonderful, and slightly romantic, tale of the discovery of one of the worlds best preserved frozen baby mammoths.

It’s miller time: Is it a moose? Is it a stag? Who knows, but you can find out a little more about a famous Scottish geologist and a strange beast he discovered.

The fanged beast: A ferocious fur covered fanged beast ought to get your attention. But there’s a twist.

The beastswithin: More small beasts in the bottom 5. It appears people do like the big beasts, but can you stomach this post?

Most read posts of 2022:

The stuff of night-mares: A giant horse. That’s it, and it’s immensely popular.

The Burrowers: I loved seeing this when I was younger, one of the largest sloths to ever lumber on our planet. Skeletons of Megatherium are popular in museums, and to see one close up is something pretty magnificent.

The nipple tooth: Perhaps a click bait title, but the post itself is pretty darn good. Mastodons, those big hairy elephant relatives that branched off around 33 million years ago. They were not mammoths.

A very brief introduction to mammoths: This is a very good post, all about mammoths. 10 species of mammoths in fact.

Thank you for continuing to support the Twilight Beasts blog, your curiosity is amazing! We will be posting new posts soo! The three of us at Twilight Beasts wish you a very happy and healthy 2023.
