Met a real nice guy via fark who showed me around a dinosaur museum in Denver. He had found several new species of Pteranodons and large fish in Western Kansas. Really neat stuff.

Those are some freakishly large and scary winged creatures.

Flying Monkeyduck? Too bad punk is dead because that's a great name for a band.

A creature of an older world maybe it was, whose kind, lingering in forgotten mountains cold beneath the Moon, outstayed their day, and in hideous eyrie bred this last untimely brood, apt to evil...

Think of them as a collapsable umbrella from hell.

ALL umbrellas are demonic. All of them.

Quetzalcoatlus needs to avoid Danish zoos at all costs.

Only if we need to free space to bring in another quetzelcoatlus with more genetic diversity, and there are hungry tyrannosaurs to feed.

Even if punk were dead, that name has the power to resurrect.
