Ah, for dino lovers it's hard to beat the moment in Tarzan At The Earth's Core when Burroughs reveals to a wondering world the function of the plates on Stegosaurus' back. As I recall - such things stick in the mind - the wily beast got above Tarzan on a cliff edge, flattened its plates to the side, and leapt into space, gliding through the air after our hero.

No wonder it became extinct....
