You Know Sixs A Crowd, Right? VI
At the Loud apartment, Lynn Sr. was sitting at the kitchen table. Lucy was sitting in front of him, with Luan, Lana and Lisa by her side.
The man had just finished sipping down a glass of wine. In the past, he would have usually avoided alcoholic beverages, but ever since his divorce he was forced to find some means to numb the stress that would trail him on a nearly weekly basis. But what he had learned today was far worse than overly long business hours.
First, he got a call during the middle of work from Principle Huggins, informing him that his son had gotten into a fight. Of course, he wasn't in a position to come to the principles office like he had been asked to, so he had to wait and confront his son about it back home.
Though knowing his son and knowing who he had fought with made him quite sure that Lincoln hadn't started the fight, or that he must have had a very good reason for snapping at Chandler.
Lynn wasn't sure if his son should face some sort of disciplinary retributi

I just stumbled across this trailer for what`s apparently a 2017 paleodocumentary from Japan, and after watching it I was honestly rendered speechless.

I have never seen such a strangely and illogically selected hotchpotch of dinosaur reconstruction that range from accurate to nuance speculation to laughably out of date all rolled together into one documentary. I can't even begin to comprehend the thought process that went into the making of this...….  
Beached Banquet
The Pacific coast of South America, 113 million years ago, the giant pterosaur Tropeognathus mesembrinus finds a stranded plesiosaur Callawayasaurus colombiensis. Knowing that the sea reptile is completely immobile on land, the opportunistic flyer feeds on it while it's still alive, more of kin are likely to join in soon.

A rather mundane, but also surprisingly funny behind-the-scenes snippet from Walking With Cavemen. I would really love to see more like these XD  
Mysterysaur : Betasuchus

Having lived in the Netherlands 66 million years ago, this theropod is only known from an incomplete femur, based on that it's estimated that the predator was only around 4 m long.

With little else to go by, the taxonomy of Betasuchus bredai is unclear, though it's most commonly attributed to be an abelisaur and possibly a close relative of the older, even smaller and also dubious abelisaur Tarascosaurus salluvicus, who, funny enough, is also only known from an incomplete femur.

If it's indeed an abelisaur, Betasuchus would be the northernmost species currently known from the fossil record.

El Clasico Tigre Dientes De Sable

While Smilodon has nowadays stolen all the thunder as the definitive saber-toothed cat (as it does have the biggest set of the eponymous saber-like canines) one can't forget the original, classic genus that gave the machairodont felines their name : Machairodus!

Though its remains were known since 1824, they were originally thought to have belong to ancient bears by French naturalist Georges Cuvier, but in 1932 they were properly identified as belonging to a cat and were given the name Machairodus.

Unfortunately though, like with many other fossil genera found in the 19th century, Machairodus was given the wastebasket taxon treatment, and many, many fossil cat species from across the globe were lumped into the genus, mostly notably all the species that are now classified under the aptly named genus Amphimachairodus.

Like with the dinosaur Iguanodon, once the taxonomic splitters got their hands on it, Machairodus went from being one of the most successful groups of big cats, and predatory mammals in general, of all times to more of a cliff note in the rich, evolutionary history of the Cenozoic.

That said, Machairodus still holds some notable big cat species, including the Chinese Machairodus horribilis (possibly one of the largest and most powerful felines known) and of course, Machairodus aphanistus.

Hailing from the Cerro de los Batallones (Hill of the Battalions) near Madrid, Spain, this lion-sized feline lived during the late Miocene (11-9 mya) alongside a Serengeti-style ecosystem of megafauna.

It preyed on ungulate like the horse Hipparion, the giraffe Decennatherium rex and the hornless rhino Aceratherium incisivum, and maybe even on juvenile Tetralophodon longirostri (a primitive type of elephant).

This ecosystem also housed an impressive community of other predators. Being one of the largest, Machairodus aphanistus was likely the resident apex predator, the lion of Batallones, dominating over its smaller cousins, the leopard-sized Paramachairodus orientalis and Promegantereon ogygia (the oldest known smilodont), and the bear-dog Magericyon anceps (90 kg). One possible rival was the large basal bear Indarctos arctoides.

In sharp contrast to the hunting strategy of Smilodon, Machairodus aphanistus fossils recovered from Batallones reveal a high percentage of tooth breakages, indicating that due to a lack of protruding incisors, it often used its sabers to subdue prey in a manner similar to modern cats.

Not much you need to know other than that I`m one guy with a strong affinity for both natural science and visual media, mainly television and movies, preferably of the animated variety, and I post content related to it.

What’s your take on the recent media craze about the T Rex not having any feathers?
