Turn to Stone Page IX

Thus concludes this storyline.

The shorebirds were based on purported Triassic bird footprints. Solid evidence of Triassic birds would have been big news indeed, and internet chatter occasionally speculated that they were misidentified heterodontosaurid tracks. It was eventually shown that the footprints actually dated to the Eocene.

Turn to Stone Page VIII

The new pterosaur model was brought in to replace this one, which had an old-school short, pointy crest. Even in this universe, pterosaur restorations are updated more slowly than those of dinosaurs.

Turn to Stone Page VII

Several events conspired to prevent me from finishing this page as early as I'd have liked, besides the fact that it's the longest page in this story arc. At least it's up now!

The song is a parody of This Day Aria. If setting Savape on Fuzzlehead appears too harsh, keep in mind that Tianyulong is one of the reasons the Speculative Dinosaur Project ground to a halt (though there have supposedly been myriad developments behind the scenes). That, and Skull can be quite vengeful when he feels like it.

Turn to Stone Page V

Please don't try this stunt if you ever find yourself in a situation in which you need to face a villain who is armed with an instant-fossilizing ray, unless you have no other choice. Real fossils are fragile.

Turn to Stone Page IV

Kulindadromeus is a cool find. Check it out.

Incidentally, if there's anything remarkable about basal ornithischians, it's that they probably have the best permanent expressions of any dinosaur. One can't help but think that they are angry all the time, but we can't all enjoy playing the part of running popcorn in media depictions.
