Paleontologists recently found the fossilized remains of a snake in a dinosaur's nest, about to chow down on some baby dino. Thankfully, God spited the snake and wiped that mother out in a landslide. THAT'S WHAT YOU GET, SATAN!
Scientists have found a 67 million-year-old fossil of a snake coiled around dinosaur eggs and a hatchling. This is the first evidence of snakes eating dinosaurs.
"It's a stunning, once-in-a-lifetime find," said paleontologist Paul Sereno of the University of Chicago, who was not involved in the study. "We've caught one of the rarest moments in the fossil record, which is prey and predator, together."
Haha, nice Paul -- I love taking credit for things I wasn't involved in. The moon landing? That was all me. Also, fire and stretchy pants.

This is the most complete dinosaur skeleton found to date, with a whopping 98% of its bones preserved. In comparison, the most complete t-rex ever found is only 80% complete. Well, 75% after the museum discovers the theft. You think I don't spoon a dino bone to sleep every n... / Continue →

This is the latest rendering of what scientists believe the t-rex actually looked like. As you can see (unless you've got your eyes closed and are listening to your computer read this in a robot voice because you're lazy), the sexy son of... / Continue →
