    what is your favourite dinosaur ?

    well, which is it?
    There are two good times to plant a fruit tree. The best is twenty years ago. The next best is today.

    I see some have fallen into the obvious diplodocus trap already. The fools.

    Triceratops FTW

    Anyway Earth is less than 6000 year old according to certain reliable sources.

    The big one obviously T. rex.

    Pterosaurs are flying lizards and not dino’s by the way, so dapper is correct.

    This is most interesting!

    I have been a keen amateur palaeontologist since the age of two(!), since long before Jurassic Park made it globally popular. I have amassed a considerable collection over the years.

    And my favourite was always Triceratops - showing very strongly in the poll. I wonder what makes him so popular? I guess I always thought of him as a friendly gentle plant eater but with an edge - ie don't mess with a trike, because he's built like a tank and seriously tooled up...

    So clever my foot fell off.

    If we're talking non-avian dinosaurs then I'd be happy with any Allosaurid. You know the type - big head and no empathy. The perfect BP denizen in other words.

    Feeding would probably be a bit expensive. Habitat might be tricky too. Probably be great for home security provided it's house trained. Which it wouldn't be.

    Maybe I should pick something smaller.

    I have to spend hours discussing dinosaurs with my eldest Grandson (5) and have come to the conclusion that Spinosaurus is my fave.

    Head like a crocodile and a cool fin on his back.

    Deffo No 1.

    Don't like the beak on that one. Looks too snappy. Fin is a nice idea though. I can see why that would be cooling in the summer

    Hilda Saw Us

    These ammonite fossils can be found near Whitby, on the beach north of Sandsend.
    Not a dinosaur, but it does have a great name - Hilda saw rus

    From Wiki
    Hildoceras is a genus of ammonite from the Jurassic[1]era in the family Hildoceratidae. The shells are characterized by a narrow discoidal evolute shape, keeled venter, concave ribs along the outer flanks, and a shallow spiral goove running along smooth inner flanks. Whorls slightly overlap, cross sections are compressed. The ventral keel is bordered on either side by a shallow groove. The genus was named by Alpheus Hyatt after Saint Hilda in 1876.

    You can find alot of fossils on the beaches near us
    A few years ago a geezer was walking his dog on one of the beaches and the dog unearthed this thing that looked a bit like a leg bone. He realised it was a fossil and the local museum eventually uncovered the largest whole mammoth fossil in Western Europe. Whole skeleton fossils are relatively scarce becuase the corpses were usually plundered for carrion. They reckon this one must have escaped the same fate because he tumbled into a tar pit.

    Bellamites are one of my favourites. They are fossilised squid bits

    I've always been a trilobite fan myself.

    The quality of extraction and presentation that can now be achieved with an air drill is simply incredible. These chaps are up to 600 Million years old, and you can see the texture of ther eyeballs...

    2nd fave here, had a very cool neck bone arrangement v close to something like a ball and socket allowed them to really swing those horns around and get maximum defence from the neck frill. Must’ve been awesome when they’d faced off with the king.

    My daughter found this one at Saltwick Bay in Whitby in August. There are actually four fossils in there if you look at it closely.








    My fave Dino is Macrocephalosaurus by the way.

    Pretty sure my fave was Godzuki, whatever type he was.

    Godzuki is a great shout.

    As we've had pterosaurs, can I have an ichthyosaur?

    Corbynvotersaurus - want to be way back in the past?

    This thread is useless without an Allosaurus option.

    Bob had Roger's Profanisaurus earlier. A much better read.
