Dinosaurs may have been around a long time ago, but they still make us all wonder what life would be like. We all have secret Jurassic Park wishes, as long as they don’t eat us of course!
As someone who has watched all the Jurassic Park movies, I have the right to say I would love a velociraptor, specifically Blue. Blue has saved so many people throughout all of the movies, and she is a sweetheart despite her murderous tendencies. Technically, since Blue in the movies is not portrayed as an accurate velociraptor since she is twice the normal size and does not have feathers (I know, it’s strange), I guess I would want my own hybrid dinosaur. Okay, I’m going to stop beating around the bush. I just want Blue.
I don’t know if I’m allowed to cheat, but my favorite prehistoric creature is a Quetzalcoatlus. Quetzalcoatlus is a pterosaur, (not a dinosaur) but nonetheless they are extremely cool. They were the size of a giraffe, weighed 200 pounds, and could fly. Every time I look at pictures of them, I don’t think they existed. Their beaks are just so long, and so big compared to the rest of their body. They just look like giant muppets, as shown below.
I like brontosaurus.’ They are herbivores and have long necks. I would like to slide down one of their necks or tails like in the Flintstones. Also, their name apparently means “thunder lizard.” I love that.
I don’t know much about dinosaurs but I think it’s so funny that people think they didn’t have fur or feathers of some sort. If I learned anything from being a biology major for one semester it was that the T-rex was probably pretty much a giant bird.
Again, dinosaurs are cool. That’s all we have to say.
