My Budgie the Dinosaur

Monty sometimes reminds me of a mini T-Rex or Velociraptor – the way he darts about speedily.

Especially when he first started running along the floor with his tail up in a dominant position staring up at us, actually these days he mostly hops along really fast like a crow, looking for something to beat up.

It was once reported that the early Dinosaur was more like a Chicken than any other bird: http://www.science20.com/news_articles/did_dinosaurs_become_chickens

I think the scientists have got it wrong, they were more like budgies, I have living proof squawking and singing right beside me right now.

You certainly wouldn’t want to meet a 13ft high version of Monty – even a Monty the size of a dog would do serious damage!

    LOL @ Montyraptor! Yes, you may be right that early dinosaurs were more like budgies than chickens. 🙂

    I do think there is definitely something in this theory.

    Look it in the positive way, we would have “Kentuky Fried Dino” with bigger portions! 🙂
    Great article, you’re not far from the truth.
