A dinosaur with no name....yet!

Sue and Stan the T. rex. Raymond and Lane the Triceratops. Dakota the Edmontosaurus...what would you call a rather grumpy Gorgosaurus?

  2. I am watching you discuss the implications of discovering Dakota with my 7-year-old and 5-year-old for the 10th time while reading your blog. I asked the kids what they would name a grumpy Gorgosaurus and they suggested Huestis, who is a very grumpy character from a cartoon called Courage The Cowardly Dog. The kids are excited to learn what you name it. Be well. - The Faheys

  3. Huestis...sounds wonderfully grumpy to me! I shall place the name on my shortlist. Stay-tuned for the naming...that will be in late June at the Royal Society in London!

  4. Geoff, spelt specifically with a G, because there aren't many dinosaurs named Geoff and it seems to fit. Either that or Dylan after Bob Dylan, he never looks too happy either ! :)

  5. Hmmm, a Gorgosaurus? Well since we have no way of telling what the gender is I'd probably use one of these:
    Doli
    Aram
    Gimli
    Hulk
    Agatha
    Jez
    Rose
    I have to admit Huestis sounds really unique though. I kind of like it myself. Of course we can always just call it Grumpy.
