What does your OC know about dinosaurs?

Tenley has a fascination with dinosaurs, so she probably knows more about them than anyone else. As for what though, I mean to check out some modern children’s books about dinosaurs, as well as popular websites and TV documentaries.

When do you think theropods became “the” dinosaurs? If you ask people on the street to draw or imagine “a dinosaur”, I think something like T. rex or Velociraptor will be the first thing that comes to mind, albeit featherless. But back when my dad was a kid “dinosaur” brought to mind a sauropod, probably Brontosaurus (sic) and probably semi-aquatic. When do you think the popular default image of a “dinosaur” went from lumbering sauropods to active, “awesomebro” theropods?

Jurassic Park

Theropods have long been cast as the villains in media (even in the original King Kong), but usually opposed by a Brontosaurus or Triceratops.  Pretty much every dinosaur book I read as a child would have an illustration in it somewhere of an Allosaurus chomping on some poor sauropod’s neck.

Why does Tenley like dinosaurs?

She does indeed, although it’s hard to really work that into stories very often.  As for why, well lots of kids do at some point don’t they?  She likely had a few books on the subject, and obviously she did have access to the internet (her mother’s computer, which Tenley would use whenever her mother was out or just passed out from being drunk).

If scales do look better in media, or at least in CGI, it’s just because it’s technically far easier to realistically animate an animal with scales than with feathers or fur or other parts that move around a lot as they do (in the Walking With Beasts making of bits, for example, they talk about how it was far more of a challenge recreating mammals than reptiles). Technology is better now, so hopefully the day will come when kiddies grow up seeing feathered dinosaurs as the norm.

The technology’s been there for a while… Several years. at least by JW if not JP3 properly feathered dinosaurs have been technically possible.

The technology is good enough now.  The only things preventing it is stuff like budget,
