Here's my own trivia!
1)Which of these two species of Amargasaurus is not a nomen nudum?
a. A cazauzi
b. A groeben

from Tim M., age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 19, 2002

"What dinosaurs name means "near lizard"
Anchisaurus, I believe.

And Camptosaurus is clled bent lizard because it's thigh bone is curved for some reason. I don't remember.
from Tim M., age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 19, 2002

Wow, tough trivia.
1) Umm, I know the first chinese dinosaur named! I'm not sure it was the first ever found.(Chinese diggers probably found dinosaurs several thousands of years ago) It's Mandschurosaurus! It's name means "Manchurian lizard" because it was discovered in the far Northwestern part of China, also known as Manchuria.

"Where are DinoSol and Joe Bob B?"

I'm here, but not posting too much.

"1. This one was a little confusing I guess, I reread it and saw how it was not as clear as I thought, the answer was about 90 feet for three pteranadons lined up wing to wing."

Yes, I'd agree that it's a little confusing T - Master. Did you mean P. Sternbergi or P. Ingens? When "pteranodon" is mentioned, I automatically think of the smaller P. Ingens, (don't ask why,) with a wing span of about 7m. (Dunno about feet, I just multiplied 21 by three, and the result would be roughly 60 feet.) Of course, it would probably be different for the larger P. Sternbergi, it could almost certainly reach wingspans of 9m!

from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 19, 2002

Yay! Trivia!

1) What was the first dinosaur ever found in China? And what was it called when it was found?

2) Which dinosaur's name means "near lizard?"

3) Why was camptosaurus called "bent lizard?" And why is that not such a good name for it now?
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 19, 2002

Since there are less people here now, we don't really need so many forums I think. The science forum is taking up bandwidth, when I think that at the moment we could do just fine with dinotalk and vote for your favourite dinosaur. I think that the scince forum should be suspended, (I'm only saying this with this site's best interests at heart,) until perhaps the boards are as busy again as they used to be. If that ever happens. Who else thinks so? What do you think JC? The science forum was asked for at the height of this site's popularity, and now it's not really needed so much.
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 19, 2002
Let's see what the others want. JC

Since very few sauropod skulls (for the ammount of sauropods that have been found) have been found, and only the skull of quaesitosaurus has been discovered, I think that quaesitosaurus may well not be a dinosaur, since the skull probably belongs to another sauropod!
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 19, 2002

Oh, right... thanks Tim.
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 19, 2002

da masta: Nurosaurus is a Sauropod from Asia. It's been mentioned in some Chinese Paleontology magazines, but it's never been formally described. It's supposed to be about 80-85 ft. long. It was discovered by some guy named Dong in 1992, and it's supposed to have lived in the early Cretaceous.
from Tim M., age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 18, 2002

Really?? I thought it was a brachiosaur!

from Gianna, age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 18, 2002

Remembering some of Tim's earleir trivia, what is this nurosaurus dinosaur?
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 18, 2002

Thankyou Tim for your help.
from T-master, age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 17, 2002

Gianna, while I was reading your stories, I noticed you said Barosaurus was a Brachiosaurid. It's actually a Diplodocid. Just thought it would be benificial for you to know that. I liked your stories. :)
from Tim M., age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 17, 2002

Come to think of it, CoelurUS is from Wyoming. CoelurOIDES is not from the U.S.A.

from Tim M., age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 17, 2002

You were right on two of the three questons da masta.
from Tim M., age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 17, 2002

Tim, is the trivia I did correct?

And I don't really know anything about Rigsby's Rex other than what Tim M said. Sars.
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 17, 2002

Yay, that means I'm the closest to getting the trivia right!

I'm just not comfortable with non - metric measurements. Are feet "imperial" measurement or something?

Actually, I think that Brad's parents don't really want to give all confidential information on the web, where hackers, etc. can get at it.
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 17, 2002

1.Coeluroides has been found in India and Khasakstan, I don't know about the U.S.A.
2. Leidy described the first species of Aublysodon
3.Cope described all the now invalid species of Diclonius.

from Tim M., age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 16, 2002

"Come back Brad."
Yeah, I wish Brad would come back. He's a fundamental part of this site. But I'm not sure it's entirely his choice. He might not have the means of supporting.

from Tim M., age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 16, 2002

The large T-Rex was discovered by Keith Rigby in March 2000. It was discovered in Montana. It was named Tyranosaurus Imperator, because, well, it was bigger than other T-Rex fossils.But it has a high chance of being simply a large T-Rex. Only the Plevis and other fragments of the Skeleton have been found, but the Pelvis is 15cm longer than Giganotosaurus' This would mean that T-imperator would be 48 to 52 ft. long and it would weigh about 9.5 tons.

from Tim M., age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 16, 2002

I also didn't think JP3 was that bad, I rather liked it. Of course I wasn't jumping for joy when the T-rex was killed, but that didn't bother me too much.
from Tim M., age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 16, 2002

Here is the answer to my trivia,

1. This one was a little confusing I guess, I reread it and saw how it was not as clear as I thought, the answer was about 90 feet for three pteranadons lined up wing to wing.

2. A. Great White Shark toothed Lizard.

3. B. Therizanosaurus.

I just have a question for any one who knows, this isn't trivia, people have talked about a large t-rex recently found, i think it was nicknamed rigsby's rex, for a long time now I've been trying to find any information on it, I remember one person once asked this. I know that it was pretty long and 15% more massive than giganotosaurus, so if anyone knows any good website to find this information, or if anyone can just tell me some stuff about, I would be thankful.
from T-master, age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 16, 2002

Hey Brad, c'mon, look, almost everyone has come back. This site misses something without you. Come back Brad.

"I just saw Jurassic Park 3 gain for the third time.

It wasn't as bad as you might think.

I just didn't like the fact that T-rex died and that the raptors were smarter than humans. The Spinosaurus did look pretty cool, though."

Yeah, what a lot of people fail to realise is that JP3 isn't meant to be an accurate documentary, it's just a film. I think it was really good, too. They didn't get the facts WRONG, they never set out to get them right.

Ah, c'mon, give JC a little credit for all the hard work.
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 15, 2002
Thanks. JC

"The Pliensbacian was in the Lias epoch, therefor in the Jurassic period! *YOU'RE RIGHT! D'OH!* Not the Triassic! The pliensbachian began about 195 million years ago*YEAH, WELL, SOME BOOKS PUT EARLY JURASSIC DINOSAURS AS LATE TRIASSIC, AND VICE VERSA. I THINK IT'S A FORGIVABLE MISTAKE.* , and ended 186 mya, so I don't see how it could be in the Triassic. You probably meant to say "Jurassic" but you were typing to fast or something.*I SAID "IT WAS THE ONLY STAGE YOU MENTIONED WHICH WAS IN THE TRIASSIC," AND THE OXFORDIAN IS IN THE LATE JURASSIC TOO! (I MEAN IT IS IN THE JURASSIC TOO, I KNOW THAT THE PLEINS. IS IN THE EARLY JURASSIC!) LATE TRIASS. AND EARLY JURASS. ARE OFTEN CONFUSED...*"
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 15, 2002

More trivia, the last I'll be doing in a while:

1)Where have specimens of Coeluroides largus been found?
*U.S.A! Let me guess - Connecticut and Massachusetts?*
2)Who first described Aublysodon?
3) True or false: Edward Cope described each and every species of Diclonius.

*Now all that's left of Diclonius is isolated teeth, which are by no means adequate to represent a genus! But I think that Cope did describe them all.*

Wow that was good. And I think that that was just as hard as that trivia I gave ages ago and everyone was angry because they thought it was too hard...
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; January 15, 2002

"I don't think anybody is posting because school(except for Tom G.). I barely have any time to come here too. I usually come in the morning(like now)."

On weekdays I use the school computers, although it's really annoying because it attracts a crowd of people who stare at my screen and tell me how "gay" it is to be interested in dinosaurs, etc.
