Interesting tidbit of the day: Loving this illo of a Dryptosaurus. You can just see it bash the lunch on a rock a couple of times to stop it twitching, and then toss back its head and gulp-gulp-gulp, and then it lowers its head and blinks lazily, the last three feet of tail sticking out like a cigar. Not that I've ever seen a road runner do that with a lizard or anything.
