So, velociraptors probably lived in forested areas. You would find things like ginkgos, eucalypts, laurels, magnolias, ficus, ferns, cycads, different conifers, palms (i think), and a lot of plants that many botanists would be able to easily tell which family they came from, even today (many plant families today were around in that era).
I always have problems imagining Tyrannosaurus hanging out under the magnolia trees! Even worse, my imagination inserts a plantation home and dresses him with a Col. Sanders-style string tie and a mint julep in his forepaw.
Silly! Tyrannosaurus wasn’t from the south; his name is clearly Yankee. I thought he lived somewhere in the Catskills, and all that thunder you hear there ain’t bowling, it’s Tyrannosaurus doing the twist.
Well, there probably weren’t Southern Magnolias at the time :). Anyway i just find it interesting that a lot of the plants around back then, i have seen here in California. Fan palms, Eucalypts, Magnolias, Cycads, Ginkgos, Ficus,Araucarias etc. are all pretty common. I always imagine some themepark in Southern California whenever i see those illustrations of the Dinosaur world :).
