RE: Tanycolagreus vs Coelurus

That is awesome Mike. I'm embarrassed that the answer was right there all the time! Not sure how I can work the "swirly hypnotic gaze" into the show, but I'm sure we'll think of something.

But what the hell are prehensile eyes? And if your blind, do you really need them?

Well, George, according to the fine reference web-site at:
_Tanycolagreus_ is a giant ape that cowers from fire, has prehensile
eyes, a swirly hypnotic gaze and black-and-white stripes, and is
blind; while _Coelurus_ is a giant robot that has a swirly hypnotic
gaze, X-ray vision and a long, prehensile tongue, and is undead.
Seems like the differences are pretty subtle, but the key point is
that _Coelurus_ wins.

Hope this helps.
