    ^^^ If you don't make an argument for birds being extant dinosaurs.

    Compsognathids were one of my favorite parts of the novel Jurassic Park. Not so much the movie Lost World, though.

    Some paleontologists (Namely Robert Bakker, I believe he was the first to propose the theory) believe that some of the megapredators such as the tyrannosaurs and other large theropods had kinetic skulls. That is, like snakes, their skulls evolved in many movable pieces to allow a range of motion that would enable them to eat some pretty big things. Snakes take it to the extreme, but the idea is that T. rex would have been able to gulp and swallow some pretty large chunks of flesh.

    HUZZAH! Jen wins... and trumps my dino knowledge. Well played, friend. PM me your address and I will give you my PayPal info.

    Wasn't it Bakker that also first proposed that T. rex was mostly a scavenger? I don't personally subscribe to that theory, though. I could see the hinged skull being likely, though.

    Paleontologists believe a Tyrannosaurus rex male reproductive organ might have been up to 12 feet in length.

    Congrats. You just won my next give away. That is simply... awe inspiring. I will let you know what Sarr it is and when, Ruddy. Same terms as above.

    12 feet.... SMH.

    Sorta off topic and maybe not appropriate here, but Ruddy reminded me about some books I saw on Amazon a couple years ago. It was Dino Erotica. Apparently there are people that are all into it. I read the one sample page and was laughing so hard I couldn't see.
