Re: Talarurus (was Re: Disney Dinosaur Follies...)
Url, the anklosaur was a bastardized version of a Euoplocephalus. The
Talarurus was the one in the begining egg-travel sequence. Early on a
storyboard artist drew a PLACERIAS in it's place. Everyone was in love with
it's body shape, but I was adamant about using another kind of animal. A
hippo-like creature was what they wanted, so Talarurus was chosen because of
it's barrel shaped body (the slimmest of the ankylosaurs?) All it's scutes and
spikes were played way-down, as was that "basket-tail" as to not lose that
hippo silhoutte that they loved.
I'm not defending any choices, as I would hate to take away any "bashing
rights" for the film, but I've noticed that some peolple are genuinely
interested in how the creatures turned out the way they did!
