"Seen this type face?

8^)"

Nope. BTW, I've read your latest story, and your writing ability has impressed me. Especially for an 10 year old. (16 March isn't THAT close!)

"Yes, da masta, birds need their feathers to fly. I guess I misunderstood you. When you were implying that Therizinosaurs had feathers I thought you were implying that they had feathers because it was cold.
I don't know all that much about the climate uring the Cretaceous, but I do know that during the time of T-rex the climate was subtropical."

Yes, well in the jurassic it was tropical. You know that plants that are meant for tropical greenhouses don't do well in subtropical settings? There was a huge change of flora in the cretacious.

Everything doesn't revolve around animals, plants and geography/geology matter a lot. And yes, I know that dinosaurs are not plants, you understand my point and you know it.

Apart from the natural history museum which is the best in England, (I have been there about ten times in total by now! And I'm really not exaggerating! Not much is it? My excuse is that I live about 2 hours of driving away from it. Yeah... maybe I ought to go there more...) I really hate London. I don't like big crowds and cities... amazing, I've lived in Brum for 12 years.

"I don't think Nothronychus had feathers, but other Therizinosauroids did, like Beipiaosaurus."

Nothronychus had feathers. OK, I can't be 100% sure, but I think that all therizinosaurids had some sort of feathering. It's like if you know that wrens had feathers, but you've never heard of a dipper before, and you think that they don't have feathers. Notice the word "LIKE," meaning "AS IF."
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 31, 2002


(chuckles)
Wow. Then I should consider myself lucky.
If I don't see at least one deer on the big apricot orchard in a day, I know somethings wrong. People who come here are astonished at how many deer there are when they come here. Let me see... In my lifetime
I've seen a wild : bobcat, red tailed fox, red tailed hawk, perigrine falcon, snowy owl, coyote, turkey vulture...
Of course, I live in quite a rural area.(But this rural area is no more then 10 miles from a huge Metropolis, which includes Fremont and Menlo Park!)

About DWF, da masta...

I like the first part, just it was gross when you were talking about the bodies, like heart or head ripped out/off, or the intestines on the floor....and is that raptor Razorclaw?
from Gianna, age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 31, 2002


"You live in Menlo Park Joe Bob b.? We live very near each other then.
We also have loads of deer around here, as well as Cougars and Bobcats."

Buh, I envy you people.

Let's see... I see magpies, blackbirds, blue tits, great tits, coal tits, house sparrows, coots, moorhens, Canada geese, black headed gulls, black rats, squirells, european hedgehogs and red foxes. That just about sums up the chordates in my area. Apart from common frogs and newts in my pond. And the stupid felis catus that try to catch them. Grrr. Don't they realise newts are endangered here?!?

I live in california too!
from Gianna, age almost 11, Fremont, Calif, what a coincidence, ?; January 30, 2002


"I'm going to answer this how you answer messages da masta because its easier"

That's why I do it. It's easier!

"YEAH ITS REALLY COOL. THE ONLY NATIVE NZ MAMMALS ARE BATS SO NZ IS A BIRD COUNTRY. BUT I'VE NEVER SEEN MOST OF THEM BECAUSE THEY ARE ENDANGERED AND SOME NATIVE ANIMALS (LIKE THE TUATARA) NOW ONLY LIVE ON OFFSHORE ISLANDS"

Cool.

NEW ZEALANDERS DON'T TEND TO THINK OF POSSUMS AS SPECIAL (MOST NEW ZEALANDERS ACTUALLY KIND OF HATE THEM) BECAUSE THEY ARE THE ANIMAL (APART FROM HUMANS) THAT DAMAGES NZ WILDLIFE MOST FROM EATING BIRD EGGS AND KILLING ENDANGERED NATIVE TREES LIKE RATA AND KAURI. ITS REALLY SAD LOOKING AT THE BUSH AND SEEING LOTS OF WHITE STUMPS OF DEAD RATA AND KAURI TREES KILLED BY POSSUMS"

I bet humans brought the possums there themselves, accidentaly or in a typical state for humans, illusions that what they are doing is good. If they ended up there naturally, I think that nature should have it's way. But it is sad to see forests destroyed. Everyone thinks it's kind of strange that I am so radical about stopping the destruction of the rainforests, all them people think about is music and who is freinds with who, etc. It's really sad.

"YEAH ONE OF THE SPECIES LIVES IN THE HILLS NEAR THE AREA THAT I LIVE IN"

Wow, you're not talking about mount Cook? Cool!

"ITS COOL AT NIGHT WHEN I CAN HEAR KIWIS AND MOREPORKS BUT I'VE NEVER SEEN AN ALIVE KIWI BECAUSE THEY ARE VERY RARE AND NOCTURNAL"

Yeah. Kiwis do have special protection don't they?

"THEY ARE AUSTRAILIAN. I DONT THINK THEY LIVE IN NZ"

They do! The central far west of the Northern NZ island. Do you live on the south or north island?

"SOME OTHER REALLY COOL NZ BIRDS ARE THE TUI,FANTAIL AND LITTLE BLUE PENGUIN"

Have you seen them?

"YEAH...BRITAIN ISN'T REALLY KNOWN FOR ITS WILDLIFE IS IT"

Nope. At least I originate from a country that hasn't abused it's wildlife so much that there's no room for animals apart from national parks. Russia.
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 30, 2002


"When I think Britain I think: Trafalgar square,Big Ben, London Zoo, Wesminster abbey, Queen Elizabeth two, etc...
When I think New Zealand I think: sheep, ANZAC day, wild animals, and Wellington.

I think Tom G. is right, there are no Kookuburras in N.Z., only in Australia I believe."

Yeah, there are. Just not exactly where Tom G lives. I think that nothing man has, or ever will make will ever compare in beauty to nature.

I just read everyone's stories in dino fiction. I just wanted to say that they are all very cool, I've been writing a dinosaur lately and I think I'll put it on dino fiction soon.

We have elephant seals here in California!
from Joe Bob B., age 10, Menlo Park, Okay, so I live in California., ?; January 30, 2002


"In fact, I think there may have been some evidence of feather-like structures on Beipiaosaurus. I read about it in National Geographic. I'll go chack later"

Well, there have certainly been feathers, or at least feather - like structures on the primitive therizinosaurid _Nothronychus_, so I guess there's no reason why other therizinosaurs shouldn't have feathers.
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 30, 2002


Tom G, your summer is: december, january, february, isn't it?

And do you get like lots of baby turtles on your beaches one night every year (or two for the leatherback,)? Wow! We've got nothing like that here.
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 30, 2002


"So do I. I don't think the whether was getting colder..."

Surely you know that jurassic --> cretacoius the weather was cooling down? Do you want evidence? I won't bother now, but If you ask I'll try to explain.

"but it's not only birds that live in Cold whether that have feathers!"

Yes, but now birds need them to fly. Non - neornithan dinosaurs couldn't fly with theirs, could they? And nothing in nature is without a reason. I propose that they developed coatings of feather - like strucures on their bodies, perhaps to help in brooding their eggs to keep them warm? Or to warm themselves? And then they could have got feathery crests and bright colours for display, and the lighter ones developed flight.

"Here in NZ we start High school in 3rd form (3rd formers are usually 12 or 13) and finish in 7th form (7th formers are usually 17 or 18). We don't have seperate ones."

Same here!
