The greenhouse gas methane produced by all sauropods across the globe would have been about 520 million tons per year.

With sick and dead dolphins washing up on shores around the world, experts are worried and a bit baffled.
Several mass deaths of dolphins have occurred over the past few years and while experts are worried about the die-off they say we are not witnessing a global population crash.
But what is behind the resent mass strandings and deaths is complicated and, inevitably, involves humans.
For example, the bottlenose dolphin die-off in Gulf of Mexico started in early 2010, even before BP’s massive oil spill in April 2010. Disease was linked to some of the hundreds of Gulf dolphin deaths, but not all of them. The ultimate cause remains mysterious.

A new fossil suggests raptor dinosaurs brandished their butcher’s hook-like talons as weapons.
The fossil shows the dinosaur’s foot was damaged, and researchers think they know why.

The Most Insanest Crazy-Ass Dinosaur Fights You’ll See Today! by Niroot Puttapipat
It’s become quite an epidemic in today’s media that dinosaur street fights are not oftentimes portrayed accurately. These drawings may not be precisely how they happened back in the Triassic, but they’re much more badass. Which has to count for something. Checks out more of Niroot’s work at his deviantart. And in case you object to so much dino on dino violence, here’s a T-Rex playing with children:
Can you see it in the picture? No? Crime Scene Investigators… ENHANCE!

It looks like the owner of this car….

Deviantart user volko-dav has a Samoyed dog that just so happens to look amazingly like the lead character from Okami. So why not dress it up, right?
