The OP said "hybrid". I was saying it isn't a hybrid. Problem?

OOPS?

intentional misuse of the word hybrid... the correct word has escaped my mind. They are related on the classification chart.

Yes, must be a missing link, because I don't see convergent evolution making a hybrid between the two dinosaur orders.  Unless it was really trans ... it was a T-Rex trapped in the body of a Stegasaurus ;-)

Chilesaurus ... probably had an evolutionary advantage, its flesh was too spicy for most predators ;-)

more likely T-rex ate the Stegasaurus and then through some unexplained act of digestion the Stegasuarus got T-rex pregnant ;-) accidental hybrid

if spicy flesh was an advantage long enough for humans to show up Chilisaurus advantage would have been quickly changed to a disadvantage

not expecting god to show up, but if he does we’re going to have to beat the prick up.

Well, aside from the fact that no Stegasauros ever met a Tyrannysauros by about 100MY...  OK...

I love that line from the creationists.  Someday I will get to ask one of them that about Adam and Eve or Noah's Flood.  "Were You There"?

And I have 3 bookcases full of sci-fi books saying nearly everything...  Most of which will also never be true.

It should have been called Cretaceous Park.

Dinosaurs don't like being called Cretins.
