Dino Mummy

When you read that title, you probably either thought of a jurassic mother or the next Brendan Fraser movie. No, I’m talking about non-bone remains of dinosaurs. Maybe I just haven’t been paying hard enough attention but it seemed like the sort of news-worthyish item that would blip on my radars. Of course, I’d heard of dino skin impressions but … those were “probable” last time I heard them mentioned.

Images and links …

 

My immediate thought was “ah, another hoax waiting to be uncovered”. No, while I wasn’t looking, they went from “impossible” to “fairly rare”.

Heck, dkimages has a collection:

And, of course, people are selling them…

I’m confused. That programme appears not to be bad soft porn, so how is it on Channel 4?

:-) Well they have been know to show other stuff!

Actualy Channel 5 kind of took over from 4 on that count!

Anyway, might find it shown on some of the Discovery type channels. Well worth a watch if you can find it.
