Dinosaur Sighting: Frozen Triceratops

Feedloader (Clickability)

There has been virtually no snowfall where I live this year, dashing my hopes of making a snow dinosaur. One of our readers, Wim, has had better luck. In a comment on our last Dinosaur Sighting, Wim included the above picture and wrote:

I spotted a “Snowceratops belgicae” in my garden last week.

Unfortunately, it disappeared a few days later due to an unexpected temperature rise…

True, many snow dinosaurs do become extinct extremely rapidly, but that isn't going to stop me from trying to make one of my own when the first big snowstorm of the season finally arrives.

Have you stumbled across a dinosaur in an unexpected place? If you have, and have a photo of the encounter, send it to us via [email protected]!
