    Dinosaurs have lived on all the continents
    That is the land of lost content, I see it shining plain, the happy highways where I went and cannot come again.

    Happy birthday!

    Not too much an old dinosaur like me can contribute, since I grew up thinking the "Brontosaurus" was a legit dinosaur (even had packs of toy plastic brontosauruses mixed in with plastic wooly mammoths!), then it was later said it was really a type of Apatosaurus. (But now they may be separating the two again?)

    I do remember as a really small kid going to the 1960s New York World's Fair and visiting the Sinclair Oil dinosaur exhibit; if you've never been aware of this, here's a link that shows the brochure they had: https://cardboardamerica.org/2017/03...-fair-1964-65/



    (And somewhere I've still got a copy of that myself!)

    Before Jurassic Park, dinosaurs got their fifteen minutes of fame on the old Transformers cartoon series from the 1980's as the Dinobots:

    Tyrannosaurus Rex: Grimlock
    Apatosaurus: Sludge
    Stegosaurus: Snarl
    Triceratops: Slag
    Pteranodon: Swoop

    DINOSAUR FACTS!

    Tim Burton originally showed interest in directing Jurassic Park.

    The first dinosaur fossil to ever receive a name was the megalosaurus.

    The iconic dungeons and dragons monsters bulette, the owl bear, and rust monster actually started off as little plastic figures included in dollar store bags of dinosaurs.

    Evidence found in Colorado sandstone suggests Dinosaurs performed elaborate mating rituals and basically danced to woo their mate.

    Given it's muscular structure, a T-rex's arms could likely be able to move over 400 pounds with ease.

    The last dinosaur was named Denver. He's my friend and a whole lot more.

    In 2015, a new horned dinosaur was discovered. Scientists named it Hellboy.

    In 2017 an new kind of Anlyosaur was discovered. They named it Zuul Crurivastator after Zuul from Ghostbusters.

    The largest dinosaur ever discovered is still smaller than a blue whale. The liopluerodon is estimated to be about half the size (depending on your source).

    This might be hard to believe, but, dinosaurs still exist. They have co-existed with humans. Check these videos out.

    I saw your name answering this thread Knocky, I was sure the post would be delightfully strange. And full of bizarre pseudoscience nonsense. You did not disappoint.
    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    Better yet, horseshoe crabs are said to have been in existence since even before there were dinosaurs on the Earth.

    And have you ever seen a horseshoe crab use its tail to turn itself over?

    Jurassic Park should have been called Creataous Park.
