Re: The Monster of Aramberri!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh my god... Now I know Liopleurodon (or whatever this pliosaur will turn
out to be) was:
1) A pelycosaur synapsid
2) Had a sail on its back
3) Lived in the Early Permian ;)
It's sad to see how the media often provides misinformation on prehistoric
animals. This particular one takes the cake: Showing the head of a
Dimetrodon superimposed over an ocean scene. Sigh...
This just reminds me how one article I recalled several years back showed a
pterosaur & called it a "dinosaur"
Or how a report in my local newspaper on the discovery of culture in
orangutans made this statement:
"Scientists say that the new work suggests that the TWO remaining great ape
species, gorillas & BABOONS, are likely to have culture as well..."
Hmm... Last time I checked, there were 7 species of so-called "great ape", 2
sp of orang-utans, 2 sp of gorillas, the bonobo, the chimpanzee, & the
& SINCE WHEN WERE BABOONS CONSIDERED APES??????
Oh yes, Dinosaurs :)
