Literature
Pre-Historic Creatures and Medieval Warfare
In the Middle Ages, blunt force weapons such as maces and warhammers became popular thanks to the noble class, the usually bought full metal armor what made cutting and stabbing (swords and pikes) virtually USELESS. What does this have to do with dinosaurs? Lets compare T. rex with Smilodon:
-T. rex was like a warhammer/mace wileding knight: it was robust in build, resistant and relied more on force to attack. Like this it would be able to take down most heavy armored foes (on T. rex's case: large ceratopsians and hadrosaurs, even if these had a thick hide. On the Knight's case: other kinights). The down side is that it would take quite some time to kill the foe, even if he was not so heavily armored.
- Smilodon was like a sword-pike wielding knight: it was robust in build, resistant and relied to piercing and stabbing to attack. Like this it would be able to take down larger tagets more easily, but ONLY if these were not heavily armored or had great gaps on the armor (just like a swor

Well guys sorry for being innactive for an absurd amount of time. I have been addicted to video games in July and school is kinda wild this month lol
Stormcloak Crybaby
I made this as a joke about how stormcloak supporters are usually stupid, biased and childish on the internet. Feel free to use it as long as you give credit, fellow legionnaires.

And the baby photo is not mine, just like the pedobear head... and I do not know who made them.

A Reward after the Hard Work 2
After all the struggle to take the Triceratops down, the bull T. rex finally has what it was looking for. A Triceratops like that one will feed this predator for days.

The T. rex was made by :iconswordlord3d:

The Triceratops, as far as I know, was made by :iconfabrizioderossi:

Forest and grass by :icondaventrychris: (daventrychris.deviantart.com/a…)

The model was converted for XPS by :iconphelcer:, but I extracted this skin (Tawny T. rex, by :iconpaleocolour:) using UModel.
Loading...
Whenever I try to extract new skins (or if I just open the files), the skins that are shown there are those made by Levia Draconia, and the files of spinosaurus, giganotosaurus, hypo rex, etc are missing. This is strange at the very least

I decided to study paleontology for myself, but I only discuss about things that I realize I know about (when I realize only an actual paleontologist can find the answer, I just speculate). I try to analyze all the possibilities before making a conclusion about something.

I was also a strong supporter of Jair Messias Bolsonaro in Brazil... until I discovered that he supports torture. Now the worst part for me is that, thanks so some of his positions, he may be the best option for the country itself in 2018.

Likes: dinosaurs, mega fauna, games, movies, Attack on Titan, creepypastas, jokes, capitalism, respectful and playful people, The Elder Scrolls Lore, The Empire of Tamriel, guns, swords, maces, plate armor.

Dislikes: <any dinosaur> fanboys/fangirls/haters, feather haters, scale haters, communism, people who put victory above fun in video games, people who think that are able to refute anything by using appeal to authority and/or personal attack, stalinists, marxist-leninists, people who barely analize and/or barely ratiocinate before making a conclusion and that after this start to try to refute everyone who says the opposite, the Stormcloak Rebellion, the Aldmeri Dominion

I largely agree that the way theropods have their teeth organized is not truly proof of lips, and it means little to me anyway because their teeth still eclipse the foramina of the lower jaw.

Hi Dovahkiin, I was wondering what your thoughts were on the "neat row of teeth" argument for most theropods having lips?

While it is true that theropods usually differ from a great part of crocodylians in the way their teeth are organized, this is far from being the ultimate proof for lips. Why? Because evolution does not work like a straight line (unlike some people claim) and a certain characteristic that has never been a thing may slowly appear over time (if it did not work like that we would not have such a variety of life forms on a single planet). The only thing that serves as a limit for the mutations that "feed" evolution is natural selection itself (and having a lipless mouth with neat teeth would not be very different from having a lipless mouth with unnorganized teeth like in crocs, since the teeth would still be... teeth).

As a personal side note: I made a more in deep review here dovahkiinhu3br.deviantart.com/… Of course I am no authority, but that is why I tried to search and ratiocinate a lot before that (and with a little bit of help from Mark Witton's points since he is the ony paleontologist that I saw making a vary indeep research about enamel erosion and moisture).

That argument was made by me, and it isn´t much of an argument for lips, rather, it´s a rebuttal to an argument against lips.
