Movie Day Cancelled

The only video that exists with any mention of Jaxartosaurus is the Dinosaur Train A to Z song that was shared yesterday. The dinosaur is apparently similar enough to other hadrosaurs and lambeosaurs that the more well known animals are used more often as models in documentaries. The vast majority of documentaries that exist are, I have noted in the past, rather weak on central Asian dinosaurs. The episodes of Dinosaur Train featuring Jackalyn Jaxartosaurus are still available on Netflix. Movies are not the most important source for learning about any animal of course. Unfortunately, the books usually only mention Jaxartosaurus in passing or to fill the spot for J in the alphabet.
