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!

  1. Didn’t everything start small? The predecessor to the horse was teeny, and man was much smaller than today. Nonetheless, an interesting article.

      1. Yeah, that’s still the best one. Though, I haven’t seen the newest. The improvement in special effects should make them better, but it’s just the same story. “Nothing will go wrong this time.”

      2. Yeah, I don’t know what it is about Jeff Goldblum. He’s the same in every movie, but he’s been the deciding factor in whether or not to watch a lot of things.
