      “Aw!  You know Ludge gets his kicks out’a burstin’ bubbles.  Don’t let it get to ya.” Rover grumbled to himself as he leaned against the bridge railing and watched the forest and water far below.  The sun was slowly setting and the light that snuck through the trees sent shafts of light that rimmed everything in pink.

    Wind whipped at Flyspur's ears and tail as he plunged toward the water, his body ridged and his upper hands thrust in front of him.  His amphibious body automatically prepared for immersion: his clear second eyelids closed, protecting his eyes from the watery impact, the long lungs that ran the entire length of his torso took in a massive breath, his nostril slits shut tight to keep water out and air in.    He used his tail to steer him through the air, toward one clear patch the debris-filled water.  If he hit anything from such a height this would be his last dive.    His thin, streamlined body shot into the water with little resistan

OUTLAWED: Chapter 18
     It had been nearly an hour since their wild chase yet the small group of fugitives and one disgruntled prince still trudged through the dark, tangled forest, their steps eerily silent on the soft carpeted ground.  Though the air was slightly cooler in the shade of the layers upon layers of vines there was an oppressive humidity there that was lacking in the sun-baked desert of the city.    “Where exactly are we going?”  Yrch demanded. He was a color of pale green as his annoyed gaze flicked from Rover to their spiky surroundings.    “Right now?  As far from that ball of crumpled aluminum as a fellah can get.” Wi

    The banquet hall was full again but it was far from the joyous party that had brightened the room earlier that day.  Nearly a hundred people that sat around the tables hugging whimpering children or leaning on each other for emotional support, or stared listlessly at their food.  They had lost everything. But it wasn’t all hopelessness. Jssfloon were coming in the doors with bags of clothes and other needed objects and organizing them against the back wall.    Once Kya was satisfied that everyone who had once lived on the fallen branch was present she stood up at the front of the room.  All conversations stopped as the downturned f

    “Ludge!  Hey! You’ll never guess the humdinger I’ve got to tell you!”  Rover let go of the bark and let himself drop several feet to the dock, his boots clunking on the wood.  He ran over to his shuttle that hoovered inches above the water.    The slug shut off the suction and pressed a button that began to roll up the massive hose from the water.  He rolled his one red eye in Rover’s direction. “You’re joining the Glubgarus Mudbathers cult to fix that pasty complexion.”    “Nope!  Even better!”    His eyelid lowered to the level of annoyed boredom.  “You are really a sp

Hey Chill. When you scan hand drawings/paintings, what exactly to you use to scan it?

HP Envy 4501 with a broken lid.... it's a fairly ordinary scanner/printer.

I saw this and thought of a mother with a flock of babies swarming around her. (If they just figured out that the babies could fly, I don't know how they'd know if the mothers cared for them or not.)

Very interesting!  And that would be an absolutly adorable picture!  I might have to do that some time.
In the article it said they didn't.  But honestly, it's just speculation.

I mean, if they only now learn they can fly, how do they KNOW the mothers abandoned the babies at hatching? After all, I know Alligator moms do care for their babies. I'd guess the little flaplings would get most of their own food, but maybe share with the mother sometimes, and something like that wouldn't show up in the bones unless a bunch fell in a tar pit together. (Come to think of it, I wonder if there are fewer species than scientists thought, since they might have thought the babies were a separate species from the adults.)

Exactly.  I mean it's certainly a possibility.  But like most things in paleontology when it comes to behavior, it can't be proven by evidence.  
They are certainly discovering that to some degree.  Triceratops and Pachycephelosaurs (sp?) are certainly examples.  

Flaplings......is the most adorable word EVER.
