Yet Another Random Question...

I was feeling a little unimaginative, so I asked my daughter for a completely random question.  And here it is....

Do you like dinosaurs?

I'm going to add, if yes...do you have a favorite?

When I was a kid, I read every dinosaur book in the school library.  I knew all about them.  




 

My favorites were the ankylosaurus (loved that he could club any dinos that gave him attitude!)  and triceratops (hahaha...same reason, look at those horns!)   



Don't you think the triceratops looks a little bit like a rhinoceros?  









I wonder if the fact my older brother picked on me a lot has anything to do with my affinity for these two?

L love Allosaur, you know, from the movie? He's vegatarian, strong yet gentle, and smart. I believe he was an actual kind of dinosaur, and if he wasn't, he should have been.

yes! yes! YES!!!! I LOVE DINOSAURS!!!!
i'm a bit of a conspiracy freak and addicted to cryptozoology- so your comparison of trice with rhinos reminded me of the Ngoubou-
here's a wiki article:

some of my fave dinos:
dino-mummy Edmontosaurus
parasaurolophus (so purty)
and pachycephalosaurus (gotta love a creature that has a harder head than my hubby!)

I love your dinosaurs. I used to know all the names when my son went through that phase. Now I can't remember very many of them.

Today I feel like a Brontosaurus, because I'm coming off a 3-day migraine when my head felt ten times too big for my body. I barely notice my head today; it feels small compared to the rest of me. Also, I want to lumber around slowly, peacefully, savoring the absence of pain. And, a nice, leafy salad sounds good.

Hope your weekend has been pain-free!
((hugs)) Nicole

Probably one of the carnivors like T-Rex.

I love dinosaurs, but not sure if I have a favorite. I'm leaning toward Giraffatitan. :)

I like dinosaurs...I'd love to find a fossil! I'm a bit old school...I like brontosaurs...I know that's not what they are called now. :( I just can't remember their new name.

Used to teach a regular class but had one child who was a slow learner and who stayed with me for a couple of years longer than he should, not yet being able to cope with senior school, and his only interest was dinosaurs.. and yes, I know a lot about them but can't say I have a great love for the beasts... :0)

What is it about dinosaurs that kids find so compelling and intriguing?? I was the same.
