Ok, so as the title says this is just a threadctobposy dinosaur myths or inaccuices. I wil start.

microraptor was not black colored.

allosauris was the ancestor to t.rex.

megalosaurids are frail.

no other theropod even came close to t.rex in terms of biteforce and bulk.

@MrHappy: Yes, I know.

@PK: That's because T.rex's bites are stronger. Theropods like Allosaurus didn't need a such strong bite force, because of their big gape. Tyrannosaurids' gape was relatively small if compared to Allosaurus', but it wasn't small as many people say - it's still pretty big.

@Gigadino. Exactly! That's what I was meaning to say. Just not as eloquently as you. ;)

@ Carnosaur, One referring to the musculature surrounding the neck connecting to the bridge of the spine as well, factoring in other components. I can see if I can find it at work tomorrrow and PM if you like.

 

Btw, love reticulated pythons. Do you own one. I worked with one at my work! (I work at both a zoo and a museum.)

Actually TK, i think it might be a san francisco garter. Closely related and both garters but I believe they are a bit different.

It looks closer to the California red garter to me.

Primal King

NoobMember0 XPJan-05-2015 7:01 PM

Very similar subspecies. Could be either.
