Re: Dinosaur Planet

I've got to say, with all the nitpickings present in Dinosaur Planet (*pronated tyrannosaur hands!*), I especially liked their animation of the "fighting dinos" death scene. That's something I'd like to see more of - animation tying in with the fossil record. I can think of a few examples I'd like to see... the birthing icthyosaurs of the Solnhoffen, those standing Protoceratops of the Gobi, the Canadian centrosaur bonebeds and the dead pair of Leptoceratops... the list goes on.
Two cents,

I have to agree with Mr.. Holtz on Maiasaura. My first reaction was, "Why are the legs so thin?" I will admit that I am probably as Lay as you can get and still be a Dinosaur fan, but, to me, they looked out of purportions.

And someone mentioned that the younger specimens appeared to be smaller versions of the adults rather than true Juvenile stature. I thought the same thing, especially concerning "Little Das."

Further kudos to Scott Sampson. Really liked the 4 Ceratopian models and the bit with the Einiosaurus.

Looking forward to Tuesday night,
Tommy Bradley :)
