This dinosaur, estimated to be just 3-years-old at the time of its death, was uncovered in Canada recently in an extremely well-preserved condition. LiveScience writes, “The fossil is the smallest intact skeleton ever found from a group of horned, plant-eating dinosaurs known as ceratopsids, a group that includes the iconic Triceratops.” And if like me, you’ve never seen a baby dinosaur skeleton before, fret not, they are very rare. ”The big ones just preserve better: They don’t get eaten, they don’t get destroyed by animals,” study co-author Philip Currie, told LiveScience. The skeleton has been identified as a Chasmosaurus belli.

Just what you need to get into the holiday spirit: a green stegosaurus in a hat and scarf. This lawn ornament from Improvements lights up and turns its head from side to side. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like it can be ridden, which is a bummer. Still, look at how happy he looks! He’s just hoping you don’t notice that he’s not a reindeer.READ MORE

I’m not sure whether to laugh or run away screaming. I know what I would do if I were the kids living in this house. Dinovember is the practice of one set of parents (or more) to set up elaborate scenarios each night in November involving plastic dinosaurs for their kids to find when they wake up. Apparently this is a tradition in their family now.READ MORE

Yes, it’s an ad. But it’s and ad about the important place of museums in both cataloguing, displaying, and inspiring the work of others.
Also it’s like the AMoNH designed it just for us.READ MORE

You know for about five seconds I was sitting here thinking “I wonder how long it takes to light all the candles and how much of a fire hazard it is” and then I remembered that we have this technology called electricity and LED lights. New York’s Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze is probably up on that.READ MORE

I’d like to say thank you to Christie Sims, author of the “Dinosaur Beast Erotica” series. And I’m not being sarcastic. If werewolf erotica is a thing then it’s just not fair for dinosaurs not to get their due.
(Yes, I know Gryphons aren’t dinosaurs. But this is a post about dinosaur erotica. Just let it go.)
