Seisomsaurus visits school


Click to enlarge.

I've been relief teaching; sole charge at that dear little private school again.  Dinosaur project. One of the children's activities required them to pace out how long one of the big sauropods would be.  Luckily a seismosaurus turned up in the playing field just at the right time.

  2. Laughs - actually Seimosaurus hallorum did exist.
    They have recently renamed it Diplodicus Hallorum, as they think it was a larger version of a diplodicus or something...
