allosaurus

I love dinosaurs.  almost all of them.  there are a few that I don't care for, but most of those have "raptor" in the name.

having said that, allosaurus has never been a favorite of mine, at least as a kid.  it always appeared to me to be the pretender to the throne of Tyrannosaurus Rex.  since it was an ancestor to the rex, they would never meet or battle, but it was fun to dream.

then, finally, after teasing us for a season, Alice and Grumpy having their battle in Land of the Lost back in the day, which is something we always wanted to see.  we being dinosaur fans and all.

so having said that, in recent years I've become a bigger fan of the beast.  this Charles R. Knight painting is pretty cool, though a bit sedate for something he's done. 

anyway, dinosaurs are cool.
