    One ostrich eggs = twenty chicken eggs? Well, one elephant bird egg = how many ostrich eggs?🤔

    Hi everyone! I would like to take a poll in the comments, to see if you agree or disagree, with the consensus that birds are dinosaurs. Please, feel free to show evidence to why you disagree, and agree. This information will be used for a study. Thank you.

    In conclusion, they are just really flying theropods.

    Well they still are dinosaurs, they are closely related to species such as velociraptor, Utah raptor. They even are placed within the family tree of Dinosauria. The present scientific consensus is that birds are a group of theropod dinosaurs that originated during the Mesozoic Era. Also, birds are reptiles. The “birds are not theropods” movement is based on erroneous argumentation and fails to account for the data as well as the theropod hypothesis does. Also, there is no significant fossil evidence to say they aren’t.

    Found this awesome Elbathia Kingi specimen. Very well preserved cephalon.

    Is it a dinosaur? no. A bird? No. It’s flying reptile. Also, if pterosaurs had Proto-feathers, or feather like structures, where do these structures actually begin to appear in the fossil record?

    This picture depicts different hip of avian theropods (birds). Some are more similar in structure to non -avian dinosaur. The next picture will depict the skeleton of these living dinosaurs (theropods)

    These are hips of known birds, some have a more similar structure to non- avian theropods. But in general, the structure remains very unchanged.

    Hi everyone! This fossil fish was recovered from Brazil. What type\species could it be?

    • Looks like the typical Dastilbe crandalli that is very common from there. From the Ceára region, early Cretaceous. Nice one too

    I found this fossil on the beaches of Lake Erie. I just cannot find out what it is! #mystery

    • Hey there! This is an extinct group of corals called the tabulates (Tabulata). I don’t know my genera of this group that well since neither state I’ve lived in had these but Favosites is a common genus. Hopefully someone else can give you a more specific ID.

    • Awesome!

    Just incredible to think that not only are the dinosaurs not extinct, but remain one of the most successful group of vertebrates to ever exist! This is the foot of an emu, and it really looks prehistoric!

    • Dinosaur are related to birds but aren’t in the category of dinosaur. Dinosaurs are very dead birds and lizard and crocodiles and alligators are as close as you can get to a dinosaur. But that’s not saying much because it’s still not that close. Buts it’s as close as we can get. But dinosaurs are very dead. You can call it a modern day dinosaur but it’s still not a dinosaurs
