    retractable penis


    most ordinary mammals have very inconspicuous penises when not particularily "in use", only humans have developed a very prominent penis through the process of sexual selection.

    But cetaceans and some birds do have the innie that becomes an outie when it needs to, and they rarely ever look anything like human penises (which would really throw off any furry fantasies, unless you are really into weird, snake-like stiffies)

    I bet it's quite the scene when an elephant steps on himself.

    I can't think of anyone like that on this site.

    Elephants (as well as whales and many other animals, probably including dinosaurs as well) can move their penises at will. Humans can to a very tiny degree, we can do that slight wiggle, same as the way we have lost the ability to move our ears, but every now and then we manage to give them a little nudge

    aren't these amazing little learning moments?

    There's a little problem haunting this - one, there's "phylogenetical bracketing" - meaning that Tyrannosaurus is "bracketed" by feathered species, species more primitive than it - and more advanced than it, show featheryness.

    Even more specifically, the species Yutyrannus of china IS a Tyrannosaurid, slightly more primitive than Tyrannosaurus, medium sized, and *fully* feathered, even feathered feet. Meaning, it was more feathered than most birds are today!
    However
    All skin imprints from Tyrannosaurus (and a few are known) show a scaly skin.

    This means - either way - Tyrannosaurus had all the genes in place for feathers, and its forefathers had feathers up untill "just yesterday", but itself had either no feathers - or a combination of feathered body + naked patches, and we just so happen to only have found imprints of these naked patches.

    In other words, King Tyrant looked awesome.

    It's all good, folks.

    the skin impressions of trex are also from body part that are now to be comonly featherless , and for his size an adult should be able to balance his body temparature since the feathers are good heat trap its probalble that only a small part o the body is covered in featthers , like mothern elephant and that have a few amount of haies .

    I like to imagine youngster Tyrannosaurs as fully feathered, since they are similar proportions to more primitive forms, and likely lived similar lifestyles.

    My interpretation of mid-size Tyrannosaurid (Gorgosaurus/Albertosaurus) killing a apex Tyrannosaurid subadult (Daspletosaurus), the latter being more feathered than the first, but only due to being juvenile


    Both these species are fairly advanced. I have yet to illustrate a fully grown "top tier" Tyrannosaurid, so I probably should.
    Here's my depiction of Yutyrannus

    Liaoning cretaceous climate does indeed suggest snowy winters, which also helps make full fluffyness make sense. Both feathered feet (which is rare even in birds), and eagle-like poofy neck are confirmed by fossil record, which is very intriguing.

    North-American Tyrannosaurs would maneuver as far north as Alaska, which would be more than north enough to warrant winter integument, so, again, smaller/medium species I imagine to most likely be either fully or partially covered. Large species, like Tyrannosaurus itself, could perhaps be seasonally covered

    you better not have plastered it all over some meme bank >:I

    (i allready have my previous batch of dino drawings stolen by koreans and germans and at least a couple of americans, and stolen as in - they take the image, then just add their own signature and copyright on it, then get argumentative when confronted)

    I read that someone suspected it was maybe a Russian missile, but the astronomy expert said nope. Some thought it might have been the remains of a Chinese space station falling back on earth.

    Btw, I actually didn't know some of this stuff.

    Most of us probably have seen meteors or shooting stars. A meteor is the flash of light that we see in the night sky when a small chunk of interplanetary debris burns up as it passes through our atmosphere. "Meteor" refers to the flash of light caused by the debris, not the debris itself.

    The debris is called a meteoroid. A meteoroid is a piece of interplanetary matter that is smaller than a kilometer and frequently only millimeters in size. Most meteoroids that enter the Earth's atmosphere are so small that they vaporize completely and never reach the planet's surface.

    If any part of a meteoroid survives the fall through the atmosphere and lands on Earth, it is called a meteorite. Although the vast majority of meteorites are very small, their size can range from about a fraction of a gram (the size of a pebble) to 100 kilograms (220 lbs) or more (the size of a huge, life-destroying boulder).
