Hi Chi chi
We're almost at the end of the month, and there is a great guy to see today. He may seem a bit anitclimactic after our T Rex, though. First, let's take care of the first pic in my gallery. This is T Rex's foot, see how much like a bird foot it looks? I meant to do that yesterday, but mom was absent minded and didn't download it for me. The second pic is a North American oviraptorosaur, as yet unnamed (someone is hoping for corporate sponsorship), but our assistant curator, Matt LaManna, calls it the chicken from hell. His skeleton has a few real bones, but is mostly a sculpture. He has no wishbone, also no teeth, so we don't know what he ate. Maybe plants, maybe fish, shellfish, or meat, there's just no way of knowing without teeth. There's also a cool crest on his head, kind of like a hornbill's or cassowary's. On the wall behind him is a painting of what scientists think he looked like and around him the preparators have placed some shells, turtle fossils, mammal fossils, and lots of plants, so we can speculate on what he may have eaten. With all those feathers it's a pretty sure bet he was warm blooded, like the guys that are related to us: T Rex, velociraptor, deinonychus, etc., even though it's likely he wasn't related to birds at all!
Tomorrow we will end the month with some speculation and a list of paleontologists who have done the most recent research and writing about dinosaurs so that those of you who are interested can read further. Thanks for your votes all month, and for your continued interest. Here's a big hug and vote for you today. Gizmo
