You give hypothetical names, such as long necks. Why couldn't we name
them with new words. I have enjoyed Mark Schultz's "Xenozoic Tales" comic
for ages, and he manages to refer to different types of dinosaur and
creature with a wide range of names, some with very clever references.
Pterosaurs ( general) zeke
Monoclonius( Centrosaurus) goombah
I know some sound a little dinky, but why not use rukh? After all,
consider its original meaning : the Arabian elephant bird, or sometimes
caled the roc. I think some of them have nice rings to them.
