Dinopic of the day 4: Peanut

Lots of people regard all kind of extinct stuff as “dinosaurs”, especially marine reptiles and pterosaurs. Thus it should not come as a surprise that today even plant seeds are considered dinosaurs. Or are they?

Meet “Peanut”, a Brachylophosaurus sp. juvenile at the Judith River Dinosaur Institute.

This is one of the specimens with partial skin impressions, and the bones are in excellent conditions.
