Prompt: Hey, so for your sugar daddy story, the reader could be super tiny so her sugar daddy loves to call her cute and spoil her? :) -whothehellisjefferson

A/N: So this part one of…I don’t know how many parts. A lot! I’ve actually given the character a name- wahey!- and this will be an ongoing series for a while. Because Chris Evans + Sugar Daddy = yes. This is just a taster of what is to come. Enjoy it, darlings.

What's your onion on Flaaffy? I love the entire Mareep line but I like Flaafy especially b/c she's pink

At first glance it looks like Ampharos completely changes from being a sheep and becomes a dinosaur, but it’s anatomically Flaafy is pretty similar ignoring the wool.

The Mareep line has been nothing but unusually wooly dinosaurs since day one, tricking us into thinking they are some sort of innocent lambs like the sad suckers we are

…man, I had the weirdest dream last night.

EDIT: So here’s what happened. Basically the whole world was being invaded by these super weird looking aliens, like seriously, they ranged from giant dinosaurs to your typical Independence Day type ones. Also there was this white fog thing and idk exactly what it did, but it was Bad News. Something to do with dissolving anything that touched it? So yeah, just picture this giant carnivorous cloud going around.

Then there was me and two other people, and somehow we got into these neon green Baymax suits. At this point, I think part of me was aware that I was dreaming because everything was just so fucking weird, but these suits allowed us to fly so I didn’t want to think about it too deeply in case I woke up. They also created these energy-blasts when you punched the air (have any of you seen the new Ghostbusters? Kinda like that). So basically me and these two other people went around flying and attacking aliens (although apparently even when I’m in a dream I still have shit aim, like what’s up with that??) and avoiding the Death Fog. The dream ended with us stealing a pizza because what the hell.

In summary, my mind is a messed-up place.

Marvel announced at Comic-Con that the smartest hero in the Marvel Universe is now Lunella Lafayette, a 9-year-old black girl from New York, and star of the Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur comics.

The series is a reboot of the classic Devil Dinosaur stories, transporting the T. rex to modern-day New York and replacing his caveman friend Moon Boy with Lunella, a super genius and carrier of the Inhuman gene. (x)

Siats Meekerorum

The first specimen of the family Neovenatoridae discovered in North America. Geologically speaking, this is the youngest specimen of the superfamily Allosauroidea yet discovered on the continent. It was a carnivorous theropod. It has been suggested that the single individual discovered would have measured about 9 m (30 ft) in length and weighed roughly 2.5 metric tons. However, a full grown Siats would have measured about 12 m (39 ft) in length and nearly 4 metric tons in weight. Siats was discovered in 2013, and named after a man-eating monster.

Currently housed at the Field Museum in Chicago, IL, USA.

What makes this spiral galaxy so long? Measuring over 700,000 light years across from top to bottom, NGC 6872, also known as the Condor galaxy, is one of the most elongated barred spiral galaxies known. The galaxy’s protracted shape likely results from its continuing collision with the smaller galaxy IC 4970, visible just above center. Of particular interest is NGC 6872’s spiral arm on the upper left, as pictured here, which exhibits an unusually high amount of blue star forming regions. The light we see today left these colliding giants before the days of the dinosaurs, about 300 million years ago. NGC 6872 is visible with a small telescope toward the constellation of the Peacock (Pavo).

Time And Space

Kulindadromeus zabaikalicus!

Measuring about 1.5m long (5′), and living during the Mid-Late Jurassic of Siberia, Russia (~169-144 mya), this little floofer was officially named and described just two years ago. And while it might not look much different from most other feathered dinosaurs, it was actually an incredibly important discovery.

Why? Because this was the first known fully-fuzzy ornithischian, about as distantly related to feathery theropods as it’s possible to get while still being considered a dinosaur.

It sported three distinct types of fluff – hair-like “dinofuzz” filaments over most of its body, downy tufts on its arms and thighs, and unique ribbon-like structures on its shins. It also had three different types of scales, with small round scales on its hands and feet, hexagonal scales on its lower shins, and five rows of overlapping rectangular scales along the top of its tail.

Maiasaura Peeblesorum

Maiasaura was a large duck-billed (hadrosaurid) dinosaur from the late Cretaceous time period, about 76.7 million years ago. It was first discovered in Montana. It was about 9 meters (30 feet) in length. It lived in herds to as many as 10,000 individuals. Multiple discoveries of eggs, nests and hatchlings led to the conclusion that Maiasaura cared for its young. This was the first proof of giant dinosaurs raising and feeding their young. More than 200 specimens of all ages have been discovered.

Young were raised in nesting colonies, with nests packed closely together. Each nest contained about 30-40 eggs, about the size of ostrich eggs. Eggs were warmed by rotting vegetation placed in the nests, rather than the adults incubating them. When hatching, the juveniles’ legs were underdeveloped, making them incapable of walking. Adults brought food to the nests, as evidenced by the teeth of the hatchlings being slightly worn in fossils. Maiasaura may have been warm blooded, as the young grew very quickly in their first year of life. Hatchlings left the nest after about a year.

Maiasaura is the state fossil of the state of Montana, and specimens and models can be seen at the Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman, Montana, USA.
