When I was a kid, Deinocheirus was known only by its rather fearsome looking arms. What mysterious monster might have wielded those claws???

Well, just last year more complete remains were found. It turns out Deinocheirus was a bit silly looking! It was duck-billed and probably used those claws for digging. Oh, well.

That's right. Drawlloween is over, and now it's time for Dinovember. You can see more on my instagram, but for now here's Brachiosaurus:

When I was a kid, books about dinosaurs said that brachiosaurus’s nose was on the top of its head. Scientists have now rejected this hypothesis since it would have made flower-sniffing impractical.

More recent study of brachiosaurus’s skull suggests that it’s sinuses may have housed “resonant chambers.” In other words, Nose Trumpets!
