Fun With DINOS!


Were dinosaurs fatter than we think? (Did dinosaurs have fatty tissues?)

— Charlie Elliot


A very good question! We don’t know since soft tissue is not much preserved as fossils, only bones. Birds are living dinosaurs and wild birds do not store fat in their bodies. So I’m guessing the same was true for dinosaurs. 

What is the friendliest dinosaur?

— Eileen Kisluk


It’s hard to know how dinosaurs behaved. The dinosaurs with few weapons, like teeth or big claws, would have been the least dangerous. So the giant planteaters like Brachiosaurus, or toothless little meateaters like Oviraptor might have been the most gentle.
