They reclassified Othnelia?

Most of it. Meaning so many "Othnielia" remains had been moved to this Othnielosaurus, that Othnielia was rendered almost nonexistent.

Or something like that.

I feel old; I'm used to the Dougal Dixon books where all it said was Othnelia Rex.

I know the feeling. It seems almost every time I look up prehistoric stuff on the net or in books, I always find some new discovery or theory (renaming, reclassification, overhauled anatomy, etc.) that turns my beliefs upside down.

It's like if I draw some dinosaur one day, it would already be an outdated restoration by the following week. And it would also have a different name by then and belong to a different group.

Yup. Like how T-Rex females has less bones in the tail to help guide the eggs safely, or some thing like that.


I still think it was kinky that Sue was found to be a girl by the fused base vertabrae of her tail; the solid bone would have supported the extra tonnage during.....certain times of the year.

Figuring out which gender is which tends to leave you with a kinky side-feeling, usually.

Ex. T-Rex fossilized blood samples.


It always makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside.
