Process is being made on catching up… but first… a look WAAAAY back at another dinosaur.
We are enjoying the unusual dinosaurs lately. Suchomimus is another of these. This “crocodile mimic” is a carnivore and a piscivore (fish eater… a new term for us!!). This Cretaceous period predator was found in Africa. Only one incomplete skeleton has been found. It had long front arms to grab fish, a long snout and large claws… like a crocodile that could walk on two legs!!
Now for our videos… First Tribute to Suchomimus by Tyrannotitan.

You do NOT want to know how old these resource posts are!! EEP! But we did love every minute of our dino journey. Sadly I was not on the ball and pre-loading a cute kid pic for this one. BUT I hope the info comes in handy!
The “shovel lizard” Lystrosaurus came to our attention strictly by looks! It straddles the reptile and mammal (like) groups with its unusual characteristics. This VERY successful animal was found all over the world. A herbivore, it was found in the early Triassic period with concentration of fossils in Southern Africa, Asia and interestingly enough… Antarctica! The size of a pig, it is stout and short… ran on four legs and quite the comical looking creature. You can also see this dinosaur on the iPad app Fantastic Dinosaurs HD.
Our video is called Walking With Monsters: Clumsy Lystrosaurus posted by Hritzness.
And for our links… for such a prolific dinosaur we really had a limited number!
Esther found this one for us on the Lions and the Masai…
And I came across this lovely ones of Kenyan children dancing. We had two more from Esther that she deemed interesting… the kids agreed! First, A Lion Pride – Introducing Daddy to the Cubs by BBC Wildlife And the other… Lion Pride in Kenya, Africa by Brian’s Art for Animals.
