According to your vote, we have something bumpy that crawls around in this doodlewash of a little collared lizard. The cool part about this little guy is that he can also run on his hind legs making him resemble a theropod dinosaur like a velociraptor. Cool, I guess, because we just watched Jurassic World 3D again last night and I still have dinosaurs on the brain. Unfortunately, lizards were actually found fossilized inside the stomach of dinosaurs, so this guy wouldn’t have liked to hang out with his fellow theropods very much.
Philippe has loved dinosaurs ever since he was a kid and Jurassic Park was one of the reasons he chose Biology as his field of study. I was nervous for him when we went to see Jurassic World in the theater as I wondered if they could bring back the magic of the first film, since the two after the original were pretty horrible in comparison. Luckily, it was a super fun reboot, and thanks to Santa, we now own the 3D Blu-ray! Even Phineas seemed intrigued and watched most of it with us before falling back asleep.
In this movie, we get to see a fully realized theme park full of dinosaurs, which would be super fun if it actually existed. Well, until “something goes horribly wrong” as it also seems to and the dinosaurs start attacking the guests. I guess, in the end, it’s better to stick to the more mundane attractions at a normal theme park rather than risk your live in a park full of oversized carnivores. So, that’s why Philippe and I have decided to plan a trip to Disney World next! Technically, his family flew over from Paris and took him when he was three, but he doesn’t remember much and his mom said he cried the whole time. Hopefully, that won’t be the case this time.
Also, many of you may have noticed that there wasn’t a guest post today. I may only have one or two left to post before the end of the year at this point, so I’m spreading them out. It was super hard to get anything back from people during this time of year, so my fingers are crossed that I’ll be able to get things moving again in the new year!
