Dimetrodon Skeleton

This is slightly experimental, I’m fine with that.

A dinosaurdimetrodon skeleton from the Stanford Institute’s National Museum of Natural History.

Thanks Doug for letting us know what it is!

No idea what kind of dinosaur, but did daschunds evolve from that thing?

Why do you think that so many people name their dogs “Rex?”

Emi… you don’t know how right you could be.

Basically, Ol Dime’s finless cousins filled the same niche as Daschunds did when they were developed – cutting through low environments where short legs and long bodies mattered.

‘Course then Dish Network came out, and Dimetrodon was ticked off that he was on Sail Network, packed up his things, and went home mad. ;_;
