This is kinda sad. I mean, the great torosaurus never existed. :cry:

Not to mention all the dinosaur reference books that are now painfully inaccurate.

^I dont think so. They'd just be outdated, same as any older books that include Pluto as a planet.

Haha, if only someone had a Torosaurus in the ISS.

Now I get the right to laugh every time I play JPOG. XD

But seriously. This is interesting stuff. Less diversity in species at the end of the Cretaceous period definitely explains part of why they all went extinct.
