Here's some more:
"(pterosaurs's) other front claws were short and hooked and were good for
crawling and hanging upside down from branches of trees."
"At the end of the necks were silly little heads much too small for these
giants. There wasn't much space for brains. These dinosaurs must have been a

around than its neck. The plans on which >Stegosaurus< was built left no

billion years ago."
-Boy, were they off.
