New saurus

Post by Muffins »

They found a new dinosaur and it is a relative to the BLT-Rex.

It had hollow bones and was very delicate - similar to Duddles. I wonder if it died from being too active?

They found two new dinos in China that were like rabbits!

They had a snout shaped like a shovel which allowed them to dig burrows.

Kind of like how Schlop's snout allows him to be totally tucked!

Dino Butt!

Post by Muffins »

I think Sneeches might enjoy this article - they've found the first preserved dinosaur butthole!

https://www.livescience.com/first-dinos ... found.html

It's actually called a cloaca - which I think is also that chocolatey drink Schlop likes to have.

They found it had special shading:
Psittacosaurus was countershaded, meaning it had a dark back and a light underside, so its pigmented posterior would have stood out
Reminds me of Schlop's under-tale region!

It also had musk-secreting glands nearby the hole to be used during courtship... gross!
And, just like in most land vertebrates (except for mammals, which have more than one hole for defecation, urination and reproduction), this dinosaur used its hole for everything, which explains why researchers found a fossilized poop in its butt.
Did we really need an explanation for finding poop in its butt? C'mon, scientists!

Flying McNugget

Post by mini-nibs »

Hey cool post Muffins. I like that Porg Pterosaur since he is mini-sized like me
Sinomacrops had the bearing and physique of a chicken nugget
Since that little guy is so cool, I won't give you too hard of a time for posting about a pterosaur in the dinosaur thread even though pterosaurs are not dinosaurs. Instead they are a distant cousin to dinosaurs - kinda like how the Carebear Cousins are cousins to the Carebears.
Care for a little Nibs?

Picky eater

Post by Muffins »

Scientists have found out that the T. Rex was actually a picky eater with a sensitive palate
In situations where food was plentiful, they may have used their sensitive snouts to eat the more nutritious parts of their prey
This is similar how when snacks are plentiful Schlop will be more selective of what he eats. Schlop also has a sensitive snout that makes him avoid mangoes.

Hey - do you guys remember that time Lee got a BLT. Rex? That was so funny!
