Suchomimus by AntarcticSpring
Suchomimus (meaning “crocodile mimic”) was a therapod that lived during the Cretaceous period in Niger, Africa. They were 12 feet tall at the hips, about 36 feet long (including a 4 foot long snout), and weighed 5 tons. Suchomimus belonged to a group of dinosaurs called Spinosaurs which includes a seemingly close relative, the Spinosaurus. Suchomimus lived on a mostly aquatic diet and used its huge, foot-long claws to catch smaller fish and marine reptiles. Paleontologists say that its discovery is important as it illustrates the diversity of dinosaurs. In particular, this discovery illustrates that a large carnivore that lived on land could survive eating mostly fish.
Anonymous asked: what's the most interesting dinosaur fact you know
The dinosaur kingdom is separated into 2 different groups based on their pelvic structure; the lizard-hipped dinos (Saurischians) and the bird-hipped dinos (Ornithischians).
Examples of lizard-hipped dinos include therapods, like the Tyrannosaurus Rex or Velociraptor; and the sauropodomorphas, like the Brachiosaurus and Apatosaurus.
Examples of bird-hipped dinosaurs include ornithopods, like the Iguanadon; marginocephalia, like the Triceratops; and the thyreophora, like the stegosaurus and ankylosaurus.
Oddly enough, modern day birds evolved from the lizard-hipped dinosaurs rather than the bird-hipped dinosaurs.
Steve told me last night that he didn’t care if I farted in his face and I truly believe that you can’t really love someone unless you’re OK with them farting in your face
I think it’s hysterical that people are using “looking like a boy” as an insult towards women. It’s like using “acting like a girl” as an insult towards men. Wassup now boys how does it feel

Steve and I went to Michael’s earlier today to look at painting supplies for me and he bought himself a wood carving starter kit. We got home around 19:30 and he spent the past 5 hours carving while I read dinosaur articles. He told me he was carving a geometrical shape and that it was for me, but I wasn’t allowed to know what it was until he finished. When he finished about 30 minutes ago, he sat down next to me and told me “it’s not only for you; it is you” and gave me this crescent moon. For those who don’t know, I call Steve my sun and he calls me his moon. I cried… of course. He laughed at me… of course. I absolutely love it and I absolutely love him and I’m so happy.
Gorgonopsid by Morgan Gibbon
Gorgonopsids were a carnivrous group of therapsid reptiles. They belong to a group called synapsids, which are often known as “mammal-like reptiles”. They were the largest predators in the late Permian period, growing up to 5 meters long from nose to tail (about the size of a tiger or rhino), and were the first animals to have evolved the lethal canines known as saber teeth.
