actually a stegosaurus's brain was the size of a peanut

these claws are realy fuking big aren't they? they must be those of a carnivore right? if you thought that you would be mistaken. these are the claws of a therizinosaurus. these herbivores most likely used there claws as a form of defence.

i'm sorry i just love dinosaurs
User avatar #455 to #84 - therizinosaurus (02/10/2013) [-]
Claws of me?

I read a theory that they could have been used to rip open termite mounds like an ant eater. Imo dosen't hold water, but its cool none the less. One reason I like paleontology, all the speculation:-D

The Jurassic Park Game cleared up the Dilophosaur issue. While Spielberg originally didn't want it to be confused with the Raptors so they made it smaller, in The Game you can find notes that show that they were the most recent addition to the park and they were still young. (the frill however is probably just a byproduct of the frog dna ******* it up)
Pic somewhat related (genetic engineering has gone too far)

Huh, now then you mention it...
User avatar #75 - warrenzthehero (01/13/2013) [-]
I don't remember what it was, but I don't believe it was exactly a "carnataur" in the movie Dinosaur.
Also, while the size may be true, there's actually debate over the dilophosaurus frill, as it would have been pretty much entirely soft tissue and thus wouldn't have fossilized/preserved well enough to make it here. It can't really be proven wrong or right.
#85 to #75 - atmdk (01/13/2013) [-]
Sorry to disappoint, but the Diliphosaurus frill is almost undeniably false. While it is true it would be soft tissue which would often not be preserved, the muscles which would hold it out would have left markings on the bones where they attached. No muscle scarring or points of attachment have been found. So most likely no frill. At least not like the one in JP

Lol, these facts are not even interesting. Most of the stuff that's right has already been known for years. Only twelve year olds are amazed by this.
User avatar #138 to #135 - tomtomat ONLINE (01/13/2013) [-]
It's true, many of these have been known some time. But really, you would have to actually be very interested in dinosaurs to know this. Most media still writes in pterosaurs as dinosaurs... and that has never been true. Just saying.

it's not a dinosaur foot. it's a Megalapteryx or upland moa foot. a bird that died off only 500 years ago. google Megalapteryx if you want.
#32 to #30 - pickinon (01/13/2013) [-]
The paw is from a Dodo or some bird from the Oceanic area, not a dinosaur, it is actually about 500 years old instead of 50,000,000 years old.
User avatar #33 to #32 - facadeon (01/13/2013) [-]
I didn't make the content.
My only intention was to share this for others to see.
Am I a bad person for doing this?
User avatar #45 to #33 - tomtomat ONLINE (01/13/2013) [-]
No dude, you aren't bad for this. Alot of people take everything I write here for granted, as you can see. However, it's very easy to look up this dinosaur and see that it's nowhere near to be the best preserved dinosaur foot, since we still have other bird feet to look at today. It is a dinosaur though, an avian one. :D
#36 to #33 - pickinon (01/13/2013) [-]
Yes, don't just take all information you find on the internet as pure "fact"
User avatar #37 to #36 - facadeon (01/13/2013) [-]
The 2000 people who green thumbed the original content... of all those people who concurred with the content, how could I be expected to know?
It's just a small post, those who disagree, scroll down, not tarnish my account.
#40 to #37 - pickinon (01/13/2013) [-]
Yes, FunnyJunk as a whole seems to do the same thing that you did, but the fact that you are spreading this false information is really the problem.

There is a delete post also, stoopid. Come on, don't pretend like those -8 thumbs are your life, and if they are you might want to change something...
User avatar #43 to #40 - facadeon (01/13/2013) [-]
I'm not intentionally spreading false information, nor is this information destructive.
I know there is a delete post, but this time I'm standing up for myself. I don't want to have to be forced to do it.
It's taken me a long time to build comment thumbs for my account, and I know how just a few thumbs can split up the percentages.
#44 to #43 - pickinon (01/13/2013) [-]
Get over your self, suck up the red thumbs and delete your post if you care that much. Otherwise I can do this all day.
User avatar #47 to #44 - facadeon (01/13/2013) [-]
If you were in my shoes...
**** it, fj doesn't understand **** when they hate someone, it seems to take this group-mind effect that deflects the humanity of the person.
Maybe I'm being a bit deep, but someone needs to talk about this.

This site is ruled by tits and thumbs, seriously, get over yourself. The -13 thumbs you have now are there forever, it's your call man.

"Get over yourself"?
Basically an utterance to conformity.
**** conformity.
#52 to #51 - pickinon (01/13/2013) [-]
Again, stop being such an idiot (is that worded better?). If you want to just spread lies and be as stoopid as possible, go to FaceBook.

Yes, Stoopid
User avatar #55 to #52 - facadeon (01/13/2013) [-]
Now I'm spreading lies?
Birds are basically Avial dinosaurs.
#57 to #55 - pickinon (01/13/2013) [-]
Lie [lahy] - an inaccurate or false statement.

So yes, you are spreading false information, i.e. a lie.

Again; you wouldn't just see a Blue Jay and say, "Hey dude, look at that dinosaur"
User avatar #59 to #57 - facadeon (01/13/2013) [-]
But a Megalapteryx is more close in ancestry to a dinosaur; heap's close.
A blue jay? Bad example.
#61 to #59 - pickinon (01/13/2013) [-]
A Megalapteryx lived closer to the modern blue jay than it ever did to any "dinosaurs"
User avatar #67 to #61 - facadeon (01/13/2013) [-]
People are starting to red-thumb it for the fun of it. **** fj logic.
I didn't expect to find so many people know what a Megalapteryx is and protect it so bad. I'm getting off fj for the night but I need to delete this **** before more Megalapteryx defenders red-thumb it beyond **** overnight and **** up my account I've worked so hard on.
User avatar #64 to #61 - facadeon (01/13/2013) [-]
But it is still practically biologically relative to a dinosaur.

Megalapteryx was actually a bird. BAMF, but not a dinosaur.
User avatar #46 to #38 - tomtomat ONLINE (01/13/2013) [-]
OP here. Did you know that birds actually are dinosaurs? So it isn't completely false in its statement.
User avatar #53 to #46 - sqman (01/13/2013) [-]
Quite, but he could as well post a pic of a frozen chicken. What I meant was that it's not a dinosaur in common, not very accurate meaning of that word. Still, thanks for pointing it out.
User avatar #60 to #53 - tomtomat ONLINE (01/13/2013) [-]
Exactly! A frozen, or even better, an alive chicken would absolutely be a better preserved dinosaur. ^^
#50 to #46 - pickinon (01/13/2013) [-]
These bird were from recorded history however, not from prehistory. So it may be so that some birds might be considered dinosaurs, this one is in fact not a dinosaur.
User avatar #54 to #50 - tomtomat ONLINE (01/13/2013) [-]
That is false. All birds that has ever lived are in the same family, they belong in the theropod dinosaur group, like Velociraptor and Tyrannosaurus. But as I said, it's hardly to best preserved dinosaur remain in that sense.
#56 to #54 - pickinon (01/13/2013) [-]
They might all be from the same family but you don't just see a Blue Jay and say, "Hey dude, look at that dinosaur"
User avatar #58 to #56 - tomtomat ONLINE (01/13/2013) [-]
You could, actually. It's kind of mind boggling to think like that, though. It has been an accepted theory among scientists for a couple of years now. :D

#116 to #63 - atmdk (01/13/2013) [-]
I have to piggy back on your post because its what I tell my friends all the time. Saying birds are dinosaurs is entirely correct, BUT so is saying all mammals are reptiles. The problem with dinosaurs is that they don't fit into either birds or reptiles, they are an intermediary (sp?) group. In reality all life is a continuum and placing animals in groups like the Linnean system does is, imho, an outdated idea.
User avatar #149 to #116 - tomtomat ONLINE (01/13/2013) [-]
I like your way of thinking. But, I would place mammals with reptiles in the same way putting birds into dinosaurs. Why? Because there is little to no difference between a modern bird and a non-avian dinosaur, at least the theropod ones. Give Microraptor a beak and shorten its tail; you have a bird. Mammals and reptiles have completely different body functions, as in cold- vs warmblooded, the embryo starting point, milk vs no milk, etc.

Im just surprised there wasn't an intelligent species at the time of the dinosaurs. Humans haven't lived nearly as long, yet look at how much we evolved. (excluding all the dumbasses in the younger generations) Its amazing how evolution can be so unpredictable.
User avatar #42 to #24 - tomtomat ONLINE (01/13/2013) [-]
The pinicle of evolution isn't intelligence. It never was. It just so happened that primates got smarter and smarter, because that worked for us. It doesn't work for everyone. That's why sharks, for example, are just as dumb today as they were 200 million years ago. :D
User avatar #306 to #42 - smokedmeatlog (01/13/2013) [-]
True but intelligence is no doubt the pinnacle* of evolution. Thats why we're the most advanced species on Earth.
User avatar #317 to #306 - tomtomat ONLINE (01/13/2013) [-]
Yeah, pinnacle*, sorry.

I guess the words "most advanced" in this case is in the eye of the beholder. Humanity have destroyed the ecosystem on a level before only seen by natrual catastrophes. We are the only animal that knows the cause of our behaviour, and yet we don't care at all. Earth would be better off without us.

...Sorry to sound like such a poop nose.
User avatar #376 to #317 - smokedmeatlog (01/13/2013) [-]
It is better, but only in the right hands and In don't think we are the right species to have this kind of power.
#35 to #24 - pickinon (01/13/2013) [-]
It's more of the fact that they were some of the first creatures on the earth, meaning they had fewer creatures before them to help them evolve to what they were. Also they had physical limitations such as short arms, unbalanced bodies, etc. Not to mention their brains were much smaller meaning they have less capacity to store thoughts, ideas, etc.
#120 to #35 - atmdk (01/13/2013) [-]
Dinosaurs as a whole constituted a range of body shapes and sizes. Same goes for their brains. While stegosaurs and sauropods (and others) had small brains, some were quite intelligent (on a relative scale). According to science our ancestors didn't start down the line to developing our present cognitive powers until after the dinosaurs. Therefore, the dinosaurs had just as much time (in fact a lot more time) to develop brains than we did.

"Did you know the 'Extinction' of Dinosaurs was actually caused by Feminist? I mean why else would they take out giant lizards and birds of prey!

All therapods (bipedal, mostly carnivorous, saurischian dinosaurs) have the same basic arm structure. These are both therapods. So it works.
User avatar #94 to #93 - rbpwn (01/13/2013) [-]
It's still a bad example

You could technically use an Orangutan arm structure to show how human's arms work, but you don't for the sake of clarity

It's not as easy as you might think. I wanted to show a picture where it clearly shows. Besides, such pictures are still in the mast minority. Still gets the point across, doesn't it? ^^
