Turn to Stone Page IX

Thus concludes this storyline.

The shorebirds were based on purported Triassic bird footprints. Solid evidence of Triassic birds would have been big news indeed, and internet chatter occasionally speculated that they were misidentified heterodontosaurid tracks. It was eventually shown that the footprints actually dated to the Eocene.

Turn to Stone Page VIII

The new pterosaur model was brought in to replace this one, which had an old-school short, pointy crest. Even in this universe, pterosaur restorations are updated more slowly than those of dinosaurs.

(Yes, the answer to that ask was specifically a set up for this scene.)

Turn to Stone Page VII

Several events conspired to prevent me from finishing this page as early as I'd have liked, besides the fact that it's the longest page in this story arc. At least it's up now!

The song is a parody of This Day Aria. If setting Savape on Fuzzlehead appears too harsh, keep in mind that Tianyulong is one of the reasons the Speculative Dinosaur Project ground to a halt (though there have supposedly been myriad developments behind the scenes). That, and Skull can be quite vengeful when he feels like it.
