August POTM Contest

August POTM Contest

Descendants of Dinosaurs



Have you ever opened the door of your parrot’s cage and instead of seeing your darling bird saw a dinosaur perched in the cage instead?

***

The present scientific consensus is that birds are a group of therapod dinosaurs that originated during the Mesozoic era.

Fossil evidence also demonstrates that birds and dinosaurs shared features such as hollow, pneumatized bones, gastroliths in the digestive system, nest-building and brooding behaviors.
Excerpt from, Origin of Birds by
Gerhard Heilmann & Wikipedia



Dinosaurs left to right: Dilophosaurus, T-Rex,
Brontosaurus, Velociraptor, and Triceratops.

And of course


Pterodactyl

Please enter a photo of your modern day dinosaur and tell us which known species of dinosaur he or she reminds you of and why. A dinosaur of your choice that isn’t pictured will be happily accepted.

Entries for this contest will be accepted until midnight August 28. The polls will be open from August 29 through August 31. The winner will be announced September 1st. The winner will receive a one year supporting membership and the winning photo will be on the PF’s front page for the month of September. Photos only in this contest, please. One submission per member. As always, Just For Fun photos and conversations are always welcome.

The Mod Team decided to do something different this month and make this month a group effort!
We are all sharing the fun, and are so excited for another fantastic month of entries!

Examples:

Terry: My example is Dactyl/Pterodactyl because of the bristles on his face. I also think he would disown me if I didn't pick him



Allee: My example is Harry/Velociraptor. I know she’s a direct descendant of the velociraptors by the way she hunts her prey, she’s a very clever girl, she hides and stalks me then launches a full on attack when I’m least expecting it. Stealth, speed and no fear.



Scott: My example is Squeaky/baby Archaeopteryx, a "transition between non-avian feathered dinosaurs and modern birds." Guess he's patiently awaiting food from his human servant.



Enjoy the contest!

Re: August POTM Contest

I have the perfect picture of Jacob looking like a T-Rex, I often call him a T-Rex as sometimes he gets over excited and has what I call a T-Rex mode where you'd get your finger chomped off if you went close. His T-Rex mode is when he gets all hyper, usually his face turns pink from excitement and he attacks any toy in sight.

Here is my entry (Jacob innocently chewing his plastic boats then suddenly the T-Rex face comes out):

Re: August POTM Contest

What a GREAT Theme!! I Love This.
Loving you dinosaur images as well.
My son is a huge dinosaur fan. He actually calls Levi, "Little AL" after the Allosaurus Dinosaur. When Levi is flying or playing on the floor he says, "there's a dinosaur on the loose" ... haha (my son has special needs) The 1st day I brought Levi home my son said, 'It's a dinosaur'. He knew right away, it was awesome!!

Wow, I'll say, that is clearly a scary dinosaur look. Great picture.

Love the gifs of Jacob in full T-Rex explosive mode! You can see his face redden, sure sign of anger and vengeance delivered via fierce beak!

This picture of Jacob couldn't be more perfect for this month's theme! I love the look on his beautiful face.

Re: August POTM Contest

Kiwi is super super excited about this month! He considers himself a direct descendent of t-Rex

Another fun dinosaur fact: dinosaurs evolved air sacs for respiration long before flight (theories range from being able to grow larger due to lighter bones or a possible adaptation to a lower oxygen environment in the early Triassic as a result of the earth still recovering from the Permian extinction event).

Oh and I’m glad to see Terry’s Dactyl has made an appearance. He is perhaps the most dinosaur looking bird on the forum!
