Dinosaur Dreams

Dreams about dinos, I mean. No dinosaurian fans have submitted any dreams yet. You know who you are.

I've noticed that as scientific and popular knowledge of dinosaurs improves, my dream-dinos have changed to match. They're hotter-blooded these days--and smaller, smarter, slicker, faster. A bit like microchips!
