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!
