Iguanodon Gardener by ursulav Iguanodon Gardener by ursulav
Nearly True Science Fact: Iguanodons were avid gardeners, and fossilized trowels, sunhats, and watering cans are often found among Iguanodon fossil remains.

It's true. Ask any paleontologist. You'll have to get them drunk first, of course, before they'll violate the strict code of secrecy enacted by their dark and sinister order, so the best course of action would be to take a paleontologist to a bar and buy them as many drinks as they would like. Go on. We'll wait.

As a frustrated person with a degree in Earth Sciences, who also wanted to be a paleontologist, I must say I never got far enough into the order to verify these claims.

Or did I? :evillaugh:

Anywho... this is 100% adorable!

Awww what a cute and original idea! :love: I love the colouring and the shading, plus the look of happiness on its face. The hat and the flowers are a nice touch too, as is the story which is quite humorous. Now if only I could find a paleontologist...
