Ok, here are the etomology of some dinosaur names. Can any one tell me why
these names were used?
Allosaurus,"Other Lizard", (Other than what?)
Plateosaurus, "flat Lizard", (A road-kill perhaps?)
Dryosaurus, "Oak Lizard", (A possible animal-vegetable combination?)
Apatosaurus, "Deceptive LIzard" (In hindsight, a useful name, but why did
it get it in the first place?)
