It has been known for a while that it was mostly an aquatic animal, even Jurassic Park III showed that, but it was always depicted with the standard lizard-like dinosaur tail.

    Font - ekolis 1 day ago Cartoonist Gary Larson named a dinosaur part. In one of his strips, a caveman scientist described the spikes on a stegosaurus tail as "the thagomizer, named after the late Thag Simmons". Real life paleontologists realized this part had no name... so they started calling it the thagomizer. 3.7k Reply Give Award Share Report Save

Which means that there were dinosaur fossils when dinosaurs existed. 7.5k Reply Give Award Share Report Save nfk040 1 day ago I imagine it would've been pretty cool if Dinosaur archeologists existed.

    Font - Linzerj 1 day ago - edited 17 hours ago 3 2 There was a study done a few years ago where scientists grew chicken embryos that had dinosaur faces - a rounded snout and teeth instead of a beak. They did this by altering gene expression in the developing embryos, so the snouts came out looking more like an alligator's than a traditional bird's. Also, birds actually existed at the same time as non-avian dinosaurs. Archaeopteryx was a Jurassic dinosaur, so the evolution of birds began long bef

    Mammal - CrazyLogical1 1 day ago T. Rex was actually really tough. Some skeletons have been found with major injuries that show evidence of years worth of healing.

    Smile - Heil-Sithis 1 day ago · edited 22 hours ago 2 There was an ultra rare skeleton of a dinosaur called spinosaurus that was the only one of its kind( not complete, but only evidence of it) and it got destroyed during ww2 when bombs fell on the museum in Germany. Only recently another intakt skeleton has been found in North Africa. Which was more complete and gave some clues about where it lived and how it got so big( it was bigger than a T. rex )

    Font - -eDgAR- 1 day ago Here's a fun movie trivia fact from a famous dinosaur movie: Do you remember in Jurrasic Park the mosquito stuck in the amber where they supposedly got the DNA from? Well, that is an elephant mosquito, the only mosquito that doesn't suck blood, so it couldn't possibly contain any dinosaur DNA. 1.2k Reply Give Award Share Report Save
