Fame and Plateosaurs

Plateosaurus has been around long enough to have been molded into a toy, mentioned, shown, and made into a robot for Walking with Dinosaurs, and really has become a highly recognizable form of dinosauria. This, however, does not necessarily mean that people recognize the Plateosaurus and know what to call it. Those that do, of course, have turned that knowledge and love of Plateosaurus into tributes and video games. Strangely, the game isn't Spore and there doesn't seem to be a Spore entry. That's the first time that has happened in many many weeks. Okay, it's not necessarily true, but the ones labeled Plateosaurus are not that spectacular and I would hate for the readers to get a healthy dose of poorly done dinosaurs. There is one hope though, and it was simply titled "Prosauropod."

Next month, October, starts on this Saturday. The month of October here at Dinosaur of the Week is not going to be about dinosaurs (one has to sometimes write about other paleo-animals to keep on one's toes!). October will be a month dedicated to the paleontology of mammals. Tune in tomorrow morning to witness the first entry in this fun filled month!
