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.
A silhouette piece called PBA: Spinosaurus vs Suchomimus by MatromX.
Another day another dinosaur… the Ouranosaurus was a sail backed, plant eating dinosaur from the Cretaceous period. Found in Africa, it had an impressive silhouette that meant the sail probably helped regulate temperature (although a site does place this dinosaur in China). It’s name means “brave lizard” and it potentially walked on two and 4 feet.
Now for our videos… Ouranosaurus Nugeriensis, a documentary style video.
Found in the Triassic period, this early theropod was a dominante predator in Argentine (South America). The Herrerasaurus had short forearms with claws on its fingers. 3 partial fossils have been found and it is not until the 80’s that a skull was recovered. To date this dinosaur is one of the earliest known to roam the earth! Quite the interesting critter.
We have TWO videos… first I’m a Dinosaur… …and second, a drawing video by Brooks Leibee.
