Favorite Dinosaur post #1  quote:



Which one is your favorite?


And yes, the Pterodactyl, the bird one, is not a dinosaur, but a flying lizard. But's lets not nitpick this thing to death. It's not science class, it's a poll posted by a backwoods redneck who lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Ankylosaurus is my favorite. Not that popular of a dino, but I like his club tail and armored back.

Important poll. I almost picked the big ol' brontosaurus but eventually stuck with Mr T-Rex, baddest assed ... bad ... ass in the primordial soup.

Well I was going to go for T Rex but I rememeber somebody once saying that the T - Rex brain was so small it probably did not know it was alive. So I went for Velocoraptor.

Yeah, but that's a real dinosaur they found, and they named it after Hogwarts in honor of Harry Potter!!!




'Hogwarts' Dragon Unveiled
By Larry O'Hanlon, Discovery News


May 23, 2006 ? A dragon-like dinosaur named after Harry Potter's alma mater has performed a bit of black magic on its own family tree, say paleontologists who unveiled the "Dragon King of Hogwarts" on Monday in Albuquerque.


The newly described horny-headed dinosaur Dracorex hogwartsia lived about 66 million years ago in South Dakota, just a million years short of the extinction of all dinosaurs. But its flat, almost storybook-style dragon head has overturned everything paleontologists thought they knew about the dome-head dinos called pachycephalosaurs.


"What you knew about pachycephalosaurs -- you can chuck it," said Spencer Lucas, curator of paleontology at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History.


"Dracorex hogwartsia is a rather fantastic new dinosaur," affirmed paleontologist Robert Sullivan of the State Museum of Pennsylvania.





--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Study: Dino Spikes, Horns Served as Name Tags

For years dinosaur experts had thought the classic dome-headed, head-butting sorts of pachycephalosaurs evolved from earlier flat-headed ancestors. The last thing they expected to find at the end of the Age of Dinosaurs was a dramatically flat-headed pachycerphalosaurs, or "pachy."


"If you were going to predict the kind of dinosaur that would live at that time, it would not be this," said Lucas.


Without so much as a nod of the head or the waving of a wand, hogwartsia has reversed the pachy family tree.


"Instead of going from flat-headed to domed, you're going from dome-headed to flat," Sullivan told Discovery News. Along with several colleagues, Sullivan co-authored the first detailed study of the new dinosaur, published this week in the New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science Bulletin.


Dracorex hogwartsia, which translates as "Dragon King of Hogwarts," was unearthed in 2003 in the Hell Creek Formation of South Dakota by three amateur fossil hunters working in cooperation with the Children's Museum of Indianapolis. But it wasn't until it was at the museum, while the fossil was being carefully prepared, that renowned dinosaur researcher Robert Bakker happened to catch sight of it while visiting. Bakker then recruited pachycerphalosaurs expert Sullivan and other paleontologists to take a closer look.


As for how it got its name? A group of children at the Children's Museum of Indianapolis drew the connection to the fanciful school of witchcraft that the famous fictional wizard Harry Potter attends and came up with the name hogwartsia..

"It's a very dragon-like looking dinosaur," said Sullivan.


J.K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter series, has been notified and apparently rather likes the new name.


"I am absolutely thrilled to think that Hogwarts has made a small claw mark upon the fascinating world of dinosaurs," said Rowling, according to a museum press release. "I happen to know more on the subject of paleontology than many might credit, because my eldest daughter was Utahraptor-obsessed and I am now living with a passionate Tyrannosaurus rex-lover, aged three.

"My credibility has soared within my science-loving family, and I am very much looking forward to reading Dr. Bakker and his colleague's paper describing 'my' dinosaur."

Did I mention that there were Chocolate Dinosaurs? That's right. Dino's made of pure chocolate.

If you went back in time and killed one, you could eat chocolate for years and years before it ran out.

Important point. I also don't know about the veracity of homo-sapiens using great thumping brontosaurus as cranes and earth-movers and other machines of industrial purpose. Just seems a little skewiff that sabre-tooth tigers, humans and dinosaurs were gathered together celebrating Jesus's birthday. But then god has worked in more mysterious ways.

Another highly relevant point. Though perhaps he was celebrating his first anniversary of being a ghost, in which it would be his first deathday.

They don't explain these things to the kids.
