    You seem very interested in Dinosaur reproduction in particular.

    I wonder why that is.

    Their genital tract had a tube like extension from which eggs would slide out into the nest.

    Or something, my memory is blurry.

    Actually I was reminded of Walking With Dinosaurs, where one had some sort of ovipositor.

    Basically, giant tube vagina?

    Something like that, yeah. @zegh8578 would know a lot more, as I've said, my memory is a bit fuzzy.

    I think you have sufficient info to masturbate now, tho.

    it could also build a sort of nest , like the nests of maisaura .
    fun fact the sauropods are somewhat deadlier for litter creatures than the apex predators ( i.e argantinosaurus dead trap of his footprint )

    Sauropods were stupid, and dangerous to a lot of small critters. There's actually a vomit fossil that seems to be from a very tall sauropod (it has a lot of splatter to it, suggesting a high fall) that includes small vertebrates that were gobbled up as the huge animal indiscriminately tore into tree canopes.

    And yeah, female dinos would have like bird-vags. Male dinos could have had duck-like penises though, in order to reach. Cloaca-rubbing seems to not really be an option for the larger ones.
    (ducks have external penises, as in, when they get a stiffy it comes out)

    Btw, played some beta of "Saurian"

    so far it is amazing. Independent game, so the scientific expertise is top notch, realism is absolute - it's NOT some generic dinosaur-age, it is VERY specifically a particular biotope of North America, namely the Hell Creek formation - and NOT any other formation :D I love that, it's like "b-but my dinosaur book says both this and that one lived in late cretaceous north america." "was it found in the Hell Creek Formation?" "no?" "then fuck you."
    Even the vegetation is Hell Creek specific.

    The game does not have guns, no lasers, no sci-fi, no role play, no story, no bonuses, no skills, nothing, just run around - and try not to die.

    You'll start out young, then grow older. As you grow, your strength and ability grows. In the beta you can only play as a little raptor, specifically Dakotaraptor (pictured. Adult Dakotaraptors may hunt and kill young ones, they don't give a shit)

    I guess moooost people would dismiss it as boring as soon as they learn there will be no mounted guns or lasers or time travel ninja killer storyline, but I love the minimalism of it: Be a dinosaur, don't get eaten.

    I was waiting for the credible review of that game ever since I've put it in my wishlist, since most Steam reviews were...looking for lasers, I guess.

    Well, that is probably the first survival game I'm genuinely interested in.

    Ugh... but yeah, I can easily imagine that. "Whaaat, all you do is just run around!? What's the point!?"
    The point is to run around. If they don't like that, then they can go get "Turok" or any other game where you do more than run around :V

    User feedback during production is a scary thing, it's kindov unpredictable, and with small niche products it can easily get hijacked by big mainstream opinions...

    A new Turok game would be pretty awesome though.

    That game looks like "The Isle", which I quite disliked...

    I hate to say it, but walking simulators aren't my thing, sorry.

    Oh god that is literally the single best lets play ever created.

    Is it bad that I actually found the game quite compelling?

    I think it was pretty frustrating, but I was young and stupid enough to get trough it and it was the right kind of frustrating. Yeah, it was fun for its day, even if it was a buggy mess.

    I just loved the lack of Hud, no directions, just you, your tits, your floppy noodle arm, and a bunch of ragdoll animated dinosaurs.

    Zdenek Burian, pioneering paleo-artist from Czech part of Austro-Hungarian empire, has dinosaur named in his honor, 36 years after his death





    80s-and-older dino nerds should easily recognize his style and dramatic poses, which - for their time - were as realistic as they got, and heavily influential for contemporary and later paleo-art. His works are notoriously copied by lesser lazies.

    Burianosaurus augustai is based on fragmentary remains from the Czech Republic, and was a small dinosaur reminiscent of a slender Iguanodon

    Better late than never, I guess. Still, I think many would have liked to see this artist honored much earlier.

    Childlife ruined, dinosaurs are birdies.

    Other way around, birdies are dinos. Think of "dinos" as a top level category, such as "mammals"
    Dogs are mammals, but not all mammals are dogs

    I know that, but dinosaurs looked a lot like birdies.

    Wait, approximately how big was a velociraptor cock?
