You know Dimetrodon is not a dinosaur, even though it appears near dinosaurs in most museums.

Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF SPRUDGE.COM / Via giphy.com 24. You know that the theropod Torvosaurus gurneyi is named after James Gurney, the paleo-artist who gave the world Dinotopia. Screenshot / Via dinotopia.com 25. You know that the “Velociraptors” in Jurassic Park and Jurassic World are actually Deninonychus. Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF CORONAKING.TUMBLR.COM / Via giphy.com Here’s what happened. Paleo-artist Gregory S. Paul was inspired by the idea that dinosaurs were actually agile, and he created a book in 1988, Predatory Dinosaurs of the World. He grouped Deinonychus fossils as Velociraptors, since the two had so many similarities (and Velociraptor was named first). Michael Crichton read Paul’s book, and acknowledged it in his Jurassic Park novel, and described Deinonychus as a Velociprator. But it’s okay, because, dinosaurs. 26. You know that even though Little Foot is an amazing sauropod, his kind were actually not that smart. Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF ELIZABETHGILLIES.TUMBLR.COM / Via giphy.com Sauropods had a low brain to body weight ratio (EQ) of about 0.2. For comparison, humans are about 7.5, dolphins 4, dogs 1, and rats 0.4. Scientists did used to think sauropods had a second brain near their butt, but now they believe it was an enlargement in the spinal cord of the hip area, which is larger than the actual brain. But sauropods were giant, so did it really matter? One sauropod, Dreadnoughtus, was so big, its name means “fear nothing.” 27. You know that Dilophosaurus was actually a large predator with head crests that weighed nearly one ton. Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF SHARDWICK.TUMBLR.COM / Via giphy.com NOT a small, spitting, venomous dinosaur, as depicted in Jurassic Park. 28. You know there are two kinds of dinosaurs, lizard-hipped saurischians and bird-hipped ornithiscians. Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF GIFBAY.COM / Via giphy.com Ironically, modern birds come from the lizard-hipped dinosaurs. 29. You know the difference between Giganotosaurus and Gigantosaurus. Heinrich Harder / Via commons.wikimedia.org (Hint: one will eat you). 30. You know that even though Ankylosaurus is known as a “living tank,” it may have had the ability to blush. Mariana Ruiz Villarreal / Via commons.wikimedia.org Even tanks can get embarrassed. 31. You know that most dinosaurs were herbivores, but that the first known dinosaurs were carnivores. Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF DINOSAURGIFS.TUMBLR.COM / Via giphy.com 32. You know that Dilpodocus had a whip-tail, which probably could break the sound barrier. Dmitry Bogdanov / Via commons.wikimedia.org Great for scaring predators or impressing the ladies. 33. You know that female T-rexes were bigger than male T-rexes. Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF TOTALFILM.TUMBLR.COM / Via giphy.com By a few thousand pounds. 34. You know that Allosaurus probably belly-flopped a lot when running. Via commons.wikimedia.org Though its arms were longer than a T-rexes', comparatively, they apparently weren’t long enough. 35. You know that Stegosaurus had a monkey-like tail, with no locking joints, which came in handy when fighting Allosaurus. Luke Jones / Via commons.wikimedia.org One Allosaurus died from a deep stab wound to the pelvis. Ouch. 36. You know that at least one dinosaur was a burrower. FunkMonk (Michael B. H.) / Via commons.wikimedia.org In 2007, Dr. Anthony J. Martin and his colleagues found an adult Oryctodromeus and two juveniles in a fossilized chamber. It was exactly wide enough for the adult, probably to keep larger animals from coming in. 37. You know that what we know about dinosaurs is constantly changing. Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF GIGA.DE / Via giphy.com For 50 years, all paleontologists knew about Deinocheirus was that it had 8-foot long arms. Now, we know that it looked like Jar Jar from Star Wars, but even weirder (think hump-back, duck-bill, ostrich-neck weird). 38. You know that not all flying dinosaurs were birds or pterosaurs. Emily Willoughby / Via commons.wikimedia.org One prime example is Changyuraptor yangi, a non-avian dinosaur described in 2014 that had four wings. Confusing, yes, but not too confusing for true dinosaur enthusiasts. Bonus: More than 1,000 species of non-avian dinosaurs have been named. 39. You know that the fastest dinosaurs were the ostrich-like ones (like Gallimimus), known as ornithomimids. Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF BENDEET.TUMBLR.COM / Via giphy.com They could run up to 37 mph. 40. You know that the word “dinosaur” means “terrible lizard.” Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF GIFSBOOM.NET / Via giphy.com “Dinos” is ancient Greek for “terrible,” but it can also simultaneously mean “wondrous.” So the man who coined the term, Richard Owen, may have meant dinosaurs were wondrously terrible, and not just terrible, creatures. 41. You know that the Bone Wars between Edward Drinker Cope and Othniel Charles Marsh was a race to find the most dinosaur bones. George Bird Grinnell and Marcus Benjamin, respectively / Via commons.wikimedia.org But it also sparked the public’s interest in paleontology. 42. You’ve seen all the Jurassic Park movies and will be in line for the midnight showing of Jurassic World on June 12. Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF DIGG.TUMBLR.COM / Via giphy.com 43. You know that we’re in the golden age of dinosaurs, and about half of all the known dinosaur species have been discovered in the past 20 years.
