Un gran Pachyrhinosaurus intenta escapar de un Nanuqsaurus empujado por el hambre a atacar a una presa mas grande que el D:
Nanuqsaurus ("reptil oso polar") fue un tiranosaurio de unos 7 metros de largo y 2 de alto- muy pequeño en comparacion con sus parientes cercanos como el T-Rex. Con un peso estimado en alrededor de media tonelada, estaba dentro del rango de tamaño de los osos polares modernos. Sus restos fueron hallados en Alaska (demasiado tarde para salir en WWD :(y vivio hace unos 70 millones de años. :>

A great Pachyrhinosaurus tries to escape a Nanuqsaurus, pushed by hunger into attacking something much larger than itself D:
Nanuqsaurus ("polar bear reptile") was a tyrannosaur about 7 meters long and 2 meters tall- very small compared to its close relatives such as T-Rex. Its weight is estimated at around half a ton meaning it was in the same size range as modern polar bears.  Its remains were found in Alaska (too late to star in the WWD movie tho :( and it lived about 70 million years ago. :>

I know that. I'm just saying some dinosaurs in pop cult like Edmontosaurus were scaled (like some fossil finds showed) so that's kinda accurate. I never thought of Pachyrhinosaurus being woolly.

I know that Jurassic Park isn't accurate, I was talking about more accurate ones such as Walking with Dinosaurs movie.

Not this species. This is pachyrhinosaurus perotorum from the prince creek formation in alaska like today it was a cold place so creatures like pachy here neaded feathers in order to survive

Is there any evidence to prove that Pachyrhinosaurus of that species being NOT scaly? Because I don't see any. I'm just saying.

Has nanuqsaurus officially replaced gorgosaurus?

In what way? It's actually more closely related to Tyrannosaurus than to Gorgosaurus.

I worded that wrong. It was believed for a long time that the resident tyrannosaur of prince creek was a polar gorgosaurus. What I meant was, has nanuqsurus now replaced gorgo in that aspect?

Well Nanuqsaurus is older than Gorgosaurus anyway; if anything, it would have been a contemporary of Albertosaurus. The remains were indeed identified as Gorgosaurus first but that was before the age of the specimens was known. Then later they found it was more similar to Tyrannosaurus and so not an albertosaurine.

PACHYRHINOSURUS !!!!!!!!!! :happybounce: :happybounce: :happybounce: :happybounce:    Yeah that movie was great ... he only thing that bothers me is that is  a mix of dialogue and documentary ... If it would be either of them it would be ok for me ( I still like it but I wish they would make it narrative or documentary ... not the two at the same time Popcorn

I think that the pachy is going to win this one.

Your great artwork proves that dinosaurs could have looked way more different than we imagine them.

The Nanu went for months with no food, a tactic known as 'fasting'

Great Art and Subject ! :D

The Tyrannosaurus really seems like its falling;

So if a Tyrannosaur falls; it can Gets Up ?  :O  (I know their small 'hands' can hold 2 tons but it really seems 'Odd')

I suspect they had great balance and didn´t fall that easily (kinda like birds), but if they did, they could get back up using their hindlegs (remember that bit in Jurassic Park just before the Velociraptor leaps at Lex and almost bites her leg off? I imagine that's exactly how they would get up after a fall)
