Mighty T. Rex Began As Cute, Deer-Size Dino

This one is for all of you dinosaur lovers out there. I do have an objection regarding the headline, which I didn’t write by the way; it came with the article. How can a deer-sized dinosaur that could out-run me and eat me be considered cute? I mean, we are seriously not talking about an infant bobcat.

And, this reminds me of something I read which I don’t think was a joke. Scientists are just a few years away from bringing a dinosaur to life. The response I saw to that was: “Dude, there have been three movies made about why that was literally a bad idea.” (Probably not an exact quote, especially considering my memory.)

That is all on the dinosaur front in the microcosm…because I knew you all were looking for dinosaur stories, especially since I just reviewed Mammoth!
