Today I am going to write about a couple of dinosaurs. Everyone likes them and there are dinosaurs toys for kids. Yep, we started liking them when we were young. There have been many movies about them, most, if not all, have not been very accurate.
The two I am going to talk about are the Stegosaurus:
And the Tyrannosaurus Rex:
The first one above, the Stegosaurus, was a large, plant-eating dinosaur. It lived 150.8 to 155.7 million years ago and roamed mostly in western North America. It wasn't too smart, probably because it had small brain about the size and shape of a hot dog. Those strange looking plates running down its back actually had blood vessels in them and thus (maybe) they were used to control the beast's body temperature.
The bottom picture above is the well know Tyrannosaurus Rex which was one of the largest meat eating dinosaurs. It could bite off huge chunks of meat with its 4-foot long jaw lined with sharp, conical teeth. Oh yes, did you know that its fore-arms were so short that they wouldn't reach its mouth. So, your guess is as good as mine at what they were used for. Now, stay out of this dinosaur's way so that you can have a good day, you hear?
