It would seem that these glowing meteors are distributing radioactive material into the very soil! The evolutionary impact on these dinosaurs has been has been nothing but astounding. When the herbivores eat the radioactive flora their DNA begins to mutate. Their genetics are then passed on to the carnivores when they get eaten! This results in glowing mutations on the predators which reflect the DNA of the various herbivores ingested! We witnessed a large theropod carnivore with a frill and horns. It had large glowing plates down the creatures back that turned into large spikes near the tip of the tail. This symbiotic relationship between predator and prey is an ingenious way to advance their radioactive genetics!

Wow, cool idea!:clap: I really like his design and the mixture of several dinosaurs and your explanations are always interesting to read:nod: However: I'd just like to  point out that from a purely scientific view it's quite impossible (at least without further explanation) because ingested DNA will be dissloved in the stomach by the strong acids... So without a special kind of mechanism or maybe virus there's not going to be any horizontal genetic transfer.
