Dan Telfer: what’s your favorite dinosaur?

…and David Orr’s corrections.

Edit (with spoiler):
As a filmmaker, I have to admire the pace change. Telfer gets increasingly riled and aggressive as he debunks the audiences favorites, then switches into a day-dream stupor as he describes his favorite Anklyosaur, revealing his character’s own victimization. Its a well-done classic build-up and delivery.

It’s a very interesting sketch! And funny. But he makes a LOT of mistakes.

“Gigantosaurus” was not the same genus as T. rex. The genus of T. rex is Tyrannosaurus. And I’m sure he WANTED to say GigaNOTosaurus, not “GiganTOsaurus” (which was actually a plant-eating sauropod from England).

Brontosaurus was not an Apatosaurus with a Stegosaurus head. It was Apatosaurus with a Camarasaurus head. Nobody would ever dream of sticking a tiny stegosaurus head on a sauropod’s huge body.

Spinosaurus was not the “tallest badass on earth”. (yikes!)

Stegosaurus didn’t have a second brain.

Ultrasaurus was not an actual genus, it’s just a big Brachiosaurus.

“raptors” are a family not a genus… and so on!

But Ankylosaurus was a pretty cool choice.
