How can you tell if a dinosaur is hiding in your fridge? Newslink
Answer--you find his footprints in the margarine (never
butter--dinosaurs get high cholesterol).
On the subject of dinosaur tracks, they found a whole bunch of them in Arkansas.
The track site, found in southwest Arkansas, covers an area of about two football fields and contains the fossilized tracks of several species and tracks from multiple animals of the same species, some of which have never been previously documented in Arkansas. The site will help researchers learn not only about the creatures that once roamed through the area, but also about the climate during the Early Cretaceous period 115 to 120 million years ago.
The most dramatic tracks found, those of a three-toed dinosaur, measure about two feet long by a foot wide. The researchers believe the footprints might belong to Acrocanthosaurus atokensis, one of the largest predators ever to walk the earth. The site also contains the giant prints of sauropods, large, long-necked plant-eating dinosaurs such as Pleurocoelus and Paluxysaurus. Other prints pepper the site as well, but it will take scientists some time to determine what other creatures might have walked through that area.
There's an Initiation Ceremony.
It involves a Squid and a Goat.
You're gonna be good friends with that Goat.
The Squid will not exactly be a stranger, either. ~~Me, on the SDMB Initiation
