Heh, holy crap, man.  Start a conversational thread, if you're going to post something that long.

I love Dimetrodon, great evolutionary story for sure.

Evolution. :-)

Most people don't realize that Sponge Bob's home, Bikini Bottom, is based on the Bikini Atoll where the Hydrogen bombs were tested.  The radiation that's left over accounts for the marine creatures in the cartoon being... ummmm... strange.

 

How did we get on this from the Dimetrodon???

Hey Chris, you know that Spongebob is based (loosely) on marine life. Hillenburg was some kind of marine biologist before he broke into toons.

Comment by Chris Dodds on December 14, 2011 at 9:59pm

Did you guys hear about the discovery of those carnivorous sponges?  That's one episode of Spongebob I gotta see :P

Comment by Samantha Thomas on December 3, 2011 at 4:42pm

Pelycosaurs, like Dimetrodon, were prehistoric reptiles of the mid-Permian, about 280 - 260 million years ago.  Evolution took the Therapsid Pelycosaurs in a mammalian track, rather than bird or lizard.  Nevertheless, they looked really cool and generally fit the commonly understood category "Dinosaur."  Paleontologists and Evolutionary Biologists may disagree with the common understanding, but that's OK.  My universe still has space for a Brontosaurus, even though such a critter never really existed... and the PLANET Pluto, for that matter.
