Re: What do you hate about dino-docs?
In the same vein as Jason's post about roaring, it's the 'fang bearing'
constantly open mouths that bug me. Most animals walk around with their
mouth closed, unless it's damned hot and their a mammal who cools down
by panting, or a croc basking. Around my own home, I know that it's
really hot if I see the crows sitting around with their mouths open- and
it's then that you realise how rarely you see them in that pose. Other
than that, open mouths are for vocalising, feeding, and yawning. That's it.
As for a marine animal swimming around with its mouth open, it's just
ludicrous. Haven't the new IMax yet, so don't know if they were guilty
of that particular sin.
