It needs wings put wings on it for it to really be cool!

Or a jetpack would always work just fine!

It's fraudulence like this that gives credence to the Dinosaur Hoax "Theory"...


I'm gonna put my neck on the line and say that neck is fake!

I think it could be a dragon.

I think the other pic someone posted is a rat.

No matter what it is with a neck that long it could do serious damage if it hit something with force.

I'm guessing a beaver.

Maybe they just put the wing sections as being part of the neck.

Where's the long tail to counter balance the head if it really is a land roaming tall vegetation forager?

I would rather picture this beast in the wetland marshes, having a feeding head that can reach a wide arch out in front of it without the need to move its body constantly.

If there ain't no wing bones, it ain't no dragon.

Yes it is. Good guess. But as you can see, it doesn't resemble much at all like the live being.






The new fossils, including a single, 2-inch-long (5 centimeters) tooth, are now in Lacovara's lab at Drexel University, on research loan from the Province of Santa Cruz, Argentina, which owns the dinosaur. The excavation team never found the dino's head, which would have been small and lightweight because it sat at the end of a 37-foot (11 m) neck.

"It's kind of a joke that sauropods don't have heads, because you almost never find a head," Lacovara said. "When they die, their heads pop off and you don't find them."

[snip]
At 65 tons, Dreadnoughtus is 85 feet (26 m) long, and two stories high at its shoulder. Estimates of the weight and length of other super-massive dinosaurs are typically based on only a handful of bones, the researchers said.

For example, estimates for the size of the Argentinosaurus, one of the largest dinosaurs on record, are based on just 13 of about 250 bones from its skeleton, Lacovara said.

He speculates that the two Dreadnoughtus dinosaurs found in Argentina died when a river flooded after suddenly breaking through a natural levee.

Yes, just like all lizards don't fly or have horns. Thinking outside the box must be prohibitive on the day after Valentines. Maybe all the blood hasn't returned to the brain.

Sixtyfive friggen million years ago?

Looking at it I think they put the head on the wrong end! it would look much more realistic if they reversed that.

Well LOL I notice Someone has said about...

the Long neck and the Difficult of holding it up or eating or Breathing

All i see is just Bone ... Who knows.. what the Throat or Neck Muscles that would hold the head up look like nor the Design !! Then Again .. When the Dinos where Roaming the Earth I ASSUME it was a Much Different Atmosphere then it is Today a Richer Atmosphere ... Gravity Pull was just maybe was a Lot Less ..


a Misnamed Dino


But this is a lot Closer to the Name and Still in Existence The Draco Lizard

The Closest we have for a Flying ( Gliding ) Reptile AKA a Dragon




Just imagine if this was Shown in Middle Ages to Royals of Europe !

but Still I would Like too.. see how this Particular Dino Roamed around with a extreme long neck ON Land!

Reminds me of the Neck of a Plesiosaur Its Plausible as it Spends the Most part of it Life in water ..



Interesting !

If we consider the possibility that earth had less gravity with different type of atmosphere that was conducive to large growth of plants and large availability of food that little guy could grow quite large if the conditions were ideal. So in my mind that cool little lizard could have been huge and terrifying at one point.
