Exhibited is wonderful game where you can adopt different types of Raptors. You can train, breed and care for them. It's amazing to see all the different outcomes of colors and markings. The community is very friendly too.

Dinosaur Novel [Sep. 1st, 2010|11:52 am]
Dinosaurs Community

I realise this is a bit of an old book so I'm not sure if anybody's posted about it before - I've just read Robert T. Bakker's novel Raptor Red. It was written about 1995 so I'm not sure how much the understanding of raptors has changed since then but nothing seems out of date to my layman's eyes.

I was familiar with Bakker's reputation as a palaeontolgist but I was worried it would either be too dry and factual to be interesting or be too over-dramatised to compensate. It turns out that Bakker's background gives a wonderful richness to the Cretaceous environment - without detracting from the main storyline.

It is clear that Bakker has gone to lengths to make sure these are not just human characters in dinosaur skins - they behave like real animals. They have their own distinct personalities and give the feeling that this is a written documentary following a real pack rather than a fictional reconstruction of an animal that we have never had the opportunity to observe directly. I love Raptor Red's curiosity and playfulness and her relationships with the other Utahraptors. I'd seriously recommend it to other dinosaur lovers.

I need help identifying! [Jun. 22nd, 2010|10:04 pm]
Dinosaurs Community

So I went to the American Museum of Natural History today and I figured I'd be too good at identifying the dinosaurs. Well this one is giving me some trouble. Any guesses?

Carnegie Spinosaurus [Apr. 15th, 2010|02:45 pm]
Dinosaurs Community


The 2009 Carnegie Spinosaurus is probably the most accurate representation of the giant to date. I especially like the skull, with its long, narrow snout, and the properly proportioned arms and claws. The sculptor even made sure to give the upper jaw a cleft for holding onto slippery fish.Read more...Collapse )

My other dinosaur art is here: http://harrysde.livejournal.com/tag/paleo-art There's not much yet, but I plan on doing more prints. What dinosaurs do you guys think would make good prints?

This is my first post here, and I didn't see it posted otherwise, so I thought a few people might be interested if they haven't already seen it? :)
And what a handsome anchiornis it is!

Hey everyone!

Bit of a newbie to LJ here, but definitely not a newbie to Dinosaurs!

This looks like a nice, friendly community, the photos of the toys and models are fantastic, and I really appreciate all the information provided about them :)

I'm hoping to write my IB Extended Essay on a subject based within Palaeontology, so I'll probably visit here for some advice from fellow Palaeo fans such as yourselves :)

Playmobil Tyrannosaurus Rex With Velociraptors [Dec. 26th, 2009|08:22 am]
Dinosaurs Community


A pretty fun set. The Tyrannosaurus rex doesn't have forward-facing eyes, and his tail is a little stumpy, but he's nice and durable, and has articulated hips, shoulders, neck, and jaws. The two little dromaeosaurs have articulated necks and hips, and are really quite adorable. There's also a large hollow tree, a swamp baseplate, a snake, a lizard, assorted plants, and a Triceratops skull.
