    Some very nifty facts! Had not heard about the possibility of kinetic skulls or the endowment of T. rex before.

    Even though the contest is over, I thought I'd toss this out there as I found it interesting. :
    Some scientists believe they may have found a way to ID the sex of a dino. There is evidence that females stored extra calcium (for use when producing eggshells, for example) in a type of tissue called medullary bone which lined the inside of their leg bone cavities.

    Dinosaur erotica has just changed my life.


    ...and I now know for sure that the Internet is a force of evil. Something that odd shouldn't be that easy to find.

    I, too, found that interesting, DragonsEye. 'Bout time the she-dinos got some respect.

    ^^^ 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.


    Never read the book maybe I should have u seen the trailer roe the new movie it looks awesome

    Hmm, apparently there is some argument that this might not be true -- http://openpaleo.blogspot.com/2009/0...aur-skull.html
