Running on A Full Tank

©Mineo Shiraishi
Mineo Shiraishi's Gasosurus is an agile beast. The viewpoint of the skull creates an angle of depth that makes the face of the active carnivore appear to quite smug, perhaps even happy, that it is running. We know, and it was stated previously yesterday, that Gasosaurus was a smaller carnosaur that many of the later predators of China could have towered over. Running around with the hardware in its mouth Gasosaurus could have easily chased down and eaten the silhouetted man that it just ran past. Appreciation of the mid-sized predators of the mid-Jurassic like Gasosaurus is not difficult when you can see its beauty in action like this.
