We've all seen them before, sometimes reconstructions go awry. This is the spot for all crimes against prehistory.

The negative reviews in "JD-man's Serious Dino Books/Dino-Related Reviews!" ( http://jurassicmainframe.forumotion.com/t479-jd-man-s-serious-dino-books-dino-related-reviews ) are for paleofails. As of this post, there's Feduccia's Riddle of the Feathered Dragons: Hidden Birds of China, Barnes-Svarney/Svarney's The Handy Dinosaur Answer Book, Lessem's The Ultimate Dinopedia: The Most Complete Dinosaur Reference Ever, The Magic School Bus, Brusatte/Benton's Dinosaurs, Mash's How to Keep Dinosaurs, Benton's Walking With Dinosaurs: Fascinating Facts, Johnson's Dino Wars: Discover the Deadliest Dinosaurs, Bloodiest Battles, and Super Survival Strategies of the Prehistoric World, Burnie's The Kingfisher Illustrated Dinosaur Encyclopedia, Brusatte's Field Guide to Dinosaurs, Benton's Dinosaurs: Living Monsters of the Past, & Schwabacher's The Magic School Bus Flies with the Dinosaurs (which is where the Jurassic Park Legacy thread left off). I'll add to "Paleofails" as I add to "JD-man's Serious Dino Books/Dino-Related Reviews!".

I put this in the JPL Paleothread, but I doubt nobody will mind if I put it here.

Ok browsing some news earlier today I found this:

"While tyrannosaurs, including T. rex, and Velociraptor showed the largest olfactory bulbs relative to brain size and body mass"

"While tyrannosaurs, including T. rex, and Velociraptor..."

"including T. rex, and Velociraptor"

"T. rex, and Velociraptor"

Wh... what?

Also this from the same article

It's the original model for Mesozoica's Entelodont. They changed it to be more accurate.

I have no idea. Razz



In any case, here's a wonderful Dromaeosaurus fossil that's for sale.



It looks like a dinosaur skeleton prop from Super Mario Bros.

I'd say any of David Peters' reconstructions deserve to be posted here. Check out the guy's reconstruction of Longisquama:
http://www.reptileevolution.com/longisquama4.htm

When you look at his method, it's no wonder he comes up with this stuff:
Spoiler:
 

He basically puts images of a fossil into photoshop and tries to trace everything he can see including details that every other paleontologist conveniently missed. Honestly though I can't help but respect Peters' dedication and his skill as an artist.

To be fair, the date does say August 15, 1920. So back then, it was a plausible theory. Even more so considering how paleontology was still fairly new back then.
