The little blue dinosaur bodies are a nice touch. I’m sure all the female bower bird dinosaurs will pick him.
Geese have teeth on their tongues. How many teeth did their ancestor have?
I’m reasonably certain they’re descended from the most straight up evil dinosaur that ever existed, but I’m too lazy to look it up.
makes me think of a trooodon.
If you want to get technical, birds are biologically close enough to dinosaurs to actually be dinosaurs. Which means that you can have a dinosaur sandwich any time you want one. Mmmm, tasty tasty dinosaur.
This comic and your comment reminded me of this video 🙂 It really hits the nail on the head when it comes to dinosaurs and modern birds/life. Birds are dinosaurs and I have my own little dino at home (mini macaw) who seems to resemble his ancestors both in his feet, feathers, and his love of tearing everything he possibly can to shreds (this may include the hands and feet of those unfortunate enough to be on his bad side). He is my little terror and I love him <3
If you want to get *real* technical, in order for Dinosaur to be a valid clade, birds have to be included, or else it’s just a random conglomeration of species that have one part of the family arbitrarily excluded.
Short version: The modern male bowerbird spends its life creating elaborate and colorful nests, to woo females. Blue is an important color for bowerbirds.
More details: The color blue impresses females the most. Blue is one of the scarcest colors in a bowerbird’s environment, so it stands to reason that males with blue items are particularly attentive, and males that can protect these blue items from getting stolen are strong – and therefore, attractive to the female bowerbirds.
Males also work on an elaborate dance, to earn the respect of female bowerbirds.
Jabbur: They aren’t real teeth. They’re made of keratin like horns and nails are.
Richard: “Closeness” doesn’t change whether they are or aren’t dinosaurs. Their last common ancestor was a member of Dinosauria, so they are too.
Looks like a pokemon…
Well, this made my day even better.
I have no idea how I missed this when it first posted! Marvelous! *imagines ferocious bowerbirdosaurus doing tailfeather shimmy for that special other bowerbirdosaurus; applauds*
I like to refer to the birdfeeder as dinosaur bait.
I’m using it solely for the amusement of an apex predator who has deigned to share my abode.
I dont find this idea that bad really. Why not?
No, it doesn’t mean that, but we can still dream. 🙂
