The joke is that Micropetasos burmensis is the first known flowering plant, immune systems frequently have trouble keeping up with pollen even when plants have been hangin’ out for millions of years, and also that Parasaurolophus’s crest is theorized to have augmented every single sound that creature made. Not covered: The fact that Kleenex is not actively found in the fossil record from this time period.
See, it’s not just a comic about a dinosaur sneezing cutely in order to pander to my audience. OR IS IT.

This is why paleontological hypotheses are best left to people who are not me. Spinosaurus was chosen in this story for its huge size and therefore ability to lift a creature the size of a gazelle, and when I checked the dates on when these creatures existed, there appeared to be some overlap in the Cretaceous, so yay me, I’m slightly accurate.

None of the creatures in today’s story are technically dinosaurs, they’re all flying/gliding reptiles. I’m of the opinion that pterosaurs were capable of powered flight, because otherwise how would they have populated so many niches across the world? Not by gliding, that’s for sure, just look at birds. The debate rages on has been settled by leading pterosaur experts, according to pterosauria. Sharovipteryx is a real fossilized reptile, though.
If you named a dinosaur after yourself, what would the dinosaur be called and what would it look like?
