Various Skeletons and How Aliens Would Reconstruct Them

One of the biggest problems with archaeology is having to make enormous guesses about what things must have looked like with no meat on them. Sure, Jurassic Park's visual effects were cool but there's constant reinterpretations of what dinosaurs actually looked like, and mistakes like having bones backwards and not realizing it for decades. Tumblr has a vivid imagination of how aliens would interact with earth's wildlife, and these memes do a fun job of combining our own archaeological difficulties with the sci-fi-ness of an alien who has no clue what they're looking at.

If Aliens Were To Reconstruct Animals Based On Bones

These are brilliant! People have started to create a new meme template that involves animals, bones, and aliens. What a wonderful combo! The first image is the skull (or skeleton) of an animal, the second image is how aliens would reconstruct this animal based on the bones provided, and the third image is the reveal of the real animal behind... err.. outside of the skeleton. 

And it really makes you think if we didn't know how these animals originally looked like, and simply reconstructed them based solely on their bone structure... then what did the dinosaurs actually look like?

Some of the skulls of our favorite furry animals have been reconstructed into terrifying and unimagine alien-y looking creatures. And while these aliens may very good at perceiving size.. it just goes to show you really can't reveal the truth of an animal's appearance based on bones. 

Is it possible that dinosaurs were cuter than we could possibly imagine? Who knows. All we do know is, according to these images below, we can't be sure of anything.
