Doggy’s Dino Fact: T- REX!!

Doggy posting,

Hey dino’s! I got another dino fact for ya. I skipped a day but it’s here now lol 😀

That's Rex in about 10 million years xD

Now Tyrannosaurus actually means “Tyrant Lizard” The T- Rex was known as the “King” of all dino’s if you will. He/she was mainly the most feared 🙂 Like other tyrannosaurids, Tyrannosaurus was a bipedal carnivore with a massive skull balanced by a long, heavy tail. Relative to the large and powerful hindlimbs, Tyrannosaurus forelimbs were small, though unusually powerful for their size, and bore two clawed digits. Although other theropods rivaled or exceeded Tyrannosaurus rex in size. More than 30 specimens of Tyrannosaurus rex have been identified, some of which are nearly complete skeletons. Soft tissue and proteins have been reported in at least one of these specimens. The abundance of fossil material has allowed significant research into many aspects of its biology, including life history and biomechanics.

Well that’s all for today Dudeosaurs!

Doggy’s Dino Fact

Doggy Posting,

Hey Dino’s! I have another dino fact for you 🙂 This week i’m just going to talk about the big picture here which is “Dinosaurs”

First of all Dinosaurs came in variety of animals. Paleontologists have identified over 500 different Genras of Dinosaurs! They also found over 1,000 different species 🙂 Now the term “Dinosaur” actually means “Terrible,Powerful, and Wondrous” It was coined in 1842 by Sir Richard Owen. Since the first dinosaur fossils were recognized in the early 19th century, mounted dinosaur skeletons have been major attractions at museums around the world, and dinosaurs have become a part of world culture. Although dinosaur were known for their large size, many dinosaurs were human-sized or even smaller. Most major groups of dinosaurs are known to have built nests and laid eggs, suggesting an oviparity similar to that of modern birds.

That’s all for this Dino Fact dino’s!

Doggy’s Dino Fact

Hey Dino’s! Here is another dino fact for you all 🙂 Rex just posted this to:

That's Noah's Raven

Q: Where were the first dinosaur trackways found? -Doulas1

A: Great question Doulas1. In all actuality, dinosaur tracks have probably been found by humans for centuries – they just didn’t know what they were. If you remember, the Chinese had found dinosaur bones way before anyone else did, but they thought they were dragon bones. In the United States, Native American drawings have been found next to tracks calling them “bird tracks.”

The first authenticated dinosaur tracks were found by the hilariously named Pliny Moody, a farmboy in South Hadley, Massachusetts. He dug them up in 1802 while ploughing up slabs of reddish rock. The newly found tracks were displayed at the Moody family farmhouse. The local doctor decided they were the tracks of Noah’s Raven, and the set of tracks were henceforth known by that name. It wasn’t until later that they were determined to be the tracks of a small ornithischian dinosaur.

Daily Dino Fact

Doggy posting,

Hey Dino’s! Since rex didnt post a dino fact today i decided to do my own. Now today i’m doing a little info on Velociraptors. Everyone loves them their fast,dangerous, and i WANT ONE! 😀

He looks Friendly, Right??

Now the velociraptor was a mid-sized dromaeosaurid, with adults measuring up to 2.07 m (6.8 ft) long, 0.5 m (1.6 ft) high at the hip, and weighing up to 15 kg.

Here is some more info i just didnt attach it 🙂

Velociraptor, like other dromaeosaurids, had a large manus hand with three strongly curved claws, which were similar in construction and flexibility to the wing bones of modern birds. The second digit was the longest of the three digits present, while the first was shortest. The structure of the carpal (wrist) bones prevented pronation of the wrist and forced the ‘hands’ to be held with the palmar surface facing inwards medially, not downwards. The first digit of the foot, as in other theropods, was a small dewclaw. This dino also had long boney projections coming down it’s vertibrae.

I had this information laying around 😀

Party on Dino’s!
