luftwaffe.be;48836911) that's not actually a hardosaur but a parasaurolopus. this means the dinosaur they're talking about may differ very much from that image.(altough a para is a member of the hardo family, it is a family with many members)

Doesnt Hadrosaur just refer to a duck billed dinosaur who was a part of the Hadrosaurid family?

Seems there are a number of duck bills in the family

2)There is no brontosaurus. Brontosaurus is a name which is rejected in the scientific world. the correct dinosaur would be a brachiosaurus.

Actually it is now called a Apatosaurus. But it used to be called a Brontosaurus. The term though obsolete is still quite popular.

In 1903 Elmer Riggs of the Field Museum in Chicago was studying Marsh's work when he found this mistake: ...the writer is convinced that the Apatosaur specimen is merely a young animal of the form represented in the adult by the Brontosaur specimen. Riggs, following the naming rules for animals that applied at the time added: ...In view of these facts the two genera may be regarded as synonymous. As the term"Apatosaurus" has priority, "Brontosaurus" will be regarded as a synonym.

When I was growing up this was a Brontosaurus. http://maxmagnusnorman.com/dinosaurs/brontosaurus.jpg

This was a Brachiosaurus. It had longer front legs and was taller at the shoulders and had that bony ridge thingy on top of its head.

Could be worse: They could cross breed said dinosaurs with the FH dev team.

I heard they found dinosaur fossils that were half a million years younger than the extinction event 65 million years ago...

Makes sense. Its not like they died off all at once, there were def areas where they managed to cling on longer.
