Bye Bye, Brachyceratops

    Seems that Brachyceratops is no more. A new study has found that it has too much in common with Rubeosaurus ovatus (formerly Styracosaurus ovatus) and therefore should be considered a juvenile form of it.
    This had been already considered, but only now, with the study of several specimens, confirmed.

    Sorry, no link for this one but here's a Rubeosaurus:

  • Stop it. Just stop it.

    We now know how the dinosaurs actually became extinct. They were reclassified as "rocks"...




  • Handsome looking beast, and I am not influenced by the name...Honestly:D




  • According to my Dad there are only a few kinds of dinosaur:

    - squaty horny f#ckers (ceratopsians mainly, but also includes stegoosaurs and ankylosaurs for some reason)
    - lanky necked f#ckers (sauropods and prosauropods)
    - big toothy f#ckers (large theropods)
    - little sneaky bastards (small theropods including raptors, compies etc.)
    - dopey looking f#ckers (hadrosaurs and ornithopods in general)
    - freaks

    *Spits coffe all over the place. Coughs uncontrollably. Family think he needs medical attention*

    It even covers Therozinosaurus accuratly!

    Lanky necked dopey looking freak......

    Some very funny (yet accurate) observation going on there.
    Your dad might have just simplified cladistics to a usable level.
