And on and on we go with the dinosaurs… The Diplodocus is a popular herbivore found in the Jurassic period in the USA. With an exceptionally long neck and tail there have been skin impressions found that suggest spikes or spines along the back of this massive dinosaur. Many partial skeletons have been found to create the whole image we are familiar with.
And now onto the videos… of course we started with I’m a Dinosaur…
We join Professor Nick on a short all about the Diplodocus…
And finally watch the herd at work with a predator to boot with BBC
Gotta love those flying dinosaurs… only not… flying LIZARDS! Potential relatives of dinosaurs AND birds! The Pteranodon is a rather LARGE version of this rather popular lizard. Found in the Cretaceous period with a diet of fish, it has been found in the USA (although a couple say Jurassic???). But enough about this intimidating fisher… onto the links and video.
We actually had TWO videos for the Pteranodon… first I’m a Dinosaur (yup running out of those)…
The second from Brookfield Zoo… Mesozoic Idol!
And now my link list… yup gonna keep the trend going!
We are always excited to find another Alberta dinosaur. This smaller Tyrannosaur was quite the carnivore and while not as large at the T Rex it was quite formidable in the face of the smaller herbivores. The Gorgosaurus was found in the Cretaceous period and had the same large head, sharp teeth, powerful back legs and shortened front arms with claws.
Our video is once again from I’m A Dinosaur. We are coming to the end of their 49 episode series!!
And now for the LIST of links… sorry on the lazy… but please enjoy the fruits of our searching!
