Roughly sixty-five million years ago, a group of the most impressive and unique animals that ever walked the face of this planet died out, and now, I find that there's no thread solely discussing them. That's a shame, they've suffered the indignity of extinction, but this just adds insult to injury. So I've taken it upon myself to start a thread dedicated to the creatures that straddle the line between animal and monster, that are at times equal parts fantasy and science, that continue to capture the imaginations of people worldwide. I'm talking about DINOSAURS. I figured this could generate a good amount of discussion given that my search for a similar thread generated a few threads discussing individual discoveries, the possibilities of a Jurassic Park 4 and a few one dinosaur related video games. This can be a thread in which to share and discuss newer discoveries, theories and ideas about dinosaurs, or to post your own ideas and/or arguments regarding these theories. Or you could just post "T.Rex is awesome!! " I'd be fine with that too, as he is. Please, my only request is that discussion here remain civil and (somewhat) lighthearted. I realize that many ideas regarding these extinct animals are controversial, but let's try and be respectful of the ideas of others.
