Tyrannosaurus and Edaphosaurus, two famous contemporaries!

This appears to be older, so I won’t be as nitpicky on the anatomy here. However, one thing that really sticks out on that point is the three-fingered Tyrannosaurus when, of course, it should have two. The main fail, however, is that 66-million-year-old Tyrannosaurus and 280-million-year-old Edaphosaurus could never have met.

Apparently a Xenotarsosaurus.

More “medieval bestiary” dinosaurs? Sure, why not? This one’s supposed to be Gasosaurus.

I don’t even know what this Giganotosaurus is doing.

Its tail was not that bendy. It should have a more or less horizontal body posture, and some actual definition to its muscles. Its right hip also doesn’t appear to be located in the same place as its left hip, and its arms are just sort of….there. Its head is also the completely wrong shape, and its tongue should not be that long.

I love the gif because there’s an incredible number of mistakes crammed into just a couple of seconds. 

1. how the hole starts in the wall but it keeps moving forward

2. then magically heals itself

3. the triceratops walks right through the wall

4. the table blinking before the dinosaurs appear

5. both tables disappear

6. so suddenly appear again as they are toppling over

7. two people clipping into running without any transition 

8. the table outline hides a man’s legs but there is no table

9. the triceratops horns aren’t white in the second clip

10. tables changing both color and material in the second clip

11. a carnivorous dinosaur’s first instinct is to go and eat a whole plate with salad
