It's a 54 minute lecture on Tyrannosaurs by one of the preeminent experts in the world. Cool!

Yes. Yes. This appeals to my inner seven year old in ways that I could not have predicted it would. Watched parts 1 and 2 during lunch and I'm hooked. Will watch the rest later. Highly recommended.

Who needs TV, when I've got T. Rex?

I assume their life and times involved none of these activities.

I think this post needs this picture.

That's a wonderful picture Akhu! Amazing how big these mothers were. Do you have any idea what that animal was? It looks more like a Carcharodontosaur of some sort than a Tyrannosaur.

Yeah, you're right, it's Giganotosaurus, and I'm sure that's why he didn't use it in the lecture, which was pretty unsurprisingly awesome.

Day 1 : I got up. I went down to the jungle to hang out. I ate a brachiosaur. Then I came home.

Day 2: I got up. I went down to the jungle to hang out. I ate a pterodon. Then I came home.

Day 3: I got up. I went down to the jungle to hang out. I fought King Kong. Then I came home.

Day 4: I got up...

There was more time between brachiosaurs and tyrannosaurs than there was between tyrannosaurs and us!

I have an actual 7 year old who wore his "Paleontologist in Training" T-Shirt to camp today. He doesn't have screen time during the week and Plants vs Zombies 2 came out today.

So the question is: will he go for PvZ? Or this? Can't wait to find out.

I think you forgot to account for the fact that daylight savings hadn't been invented until after the tyrannosaurs.

Please subtract one hour from the latter period, and compare again.
