Weirdest Thing In The World: Dinosaurs

Posted by on October 9th, 2009


Today’s Weird Things chat will one day be discovered by a team of overexcited, yet likely emotionally repressed, academics wearing khaki shorts. Hold on to your butts, we’re looking for the Weirdest Dinosaur in the World.

Here are the ground rules:

• Pictures, Pictures, Pictures

• Must be real.

Email all submissions to JustinRobertYoung@Gmail. I’ll see you kids right here at the front page at 5:30 p.m. EST where we will hash out the ultimate champion.

Our baseline was found on and is the Suchomimus. Take it away blockquote…

Evolutionarily speaking, dinosaurs and crocodiles both branched off from archosaurs at the end of the Triassic period, and thereafter maintained fairly distinct lifestyles. Suchomimus looked like a bizarre hybrid of these two families: this theropod had the body of a carnivorous dinosaur, but the long, narrow, toothy snout of a crocodile (which it presumably used to snatch fish and small lizards out of lakes and rivers).

The truth is out there, we find it today at 5:30 p.m. EST.
