FLYING STEGOSAUR! I don't remember this scene.
Well, I couldn't find my copy of the Hallowed Original, so I refer readers
to a lengthy article entitled "Dinosaurs of Pellucidar" by none other than
Philip J. Currie, at http://www.jeddak.com/currie.html.
The creature in question is a "dyrodor", described by Currie as "the most
peculiar dinosaur of the series". Gee, do you think there is anything odd
about a 60 to 70-foot long carnivorous gliding stegosaur that "emits loud
screams when angry"?
As Currie concludes, "Clearly the dyrodor is not Stegosaurus, although it
might be classified as a unique family of stegosaurs. If a paleontological
expedition is ever sent to Pellucidar again, one of the highest priorities
should be to study this highly unusual animal."
Maybe they'll have one in JPIII....
