I have a question for you. Can you identify the dinosaur in the picture above? I’m guessing you said Stegosaurus, right? But if you know a bit about your dinosaurs you might conclude that it’s a touch thin to be a Stegosaurus, and the bony plates on its back don’t look quite right. At which point you’ll probably conclude that this is a cheaply produced toy whose manufacturer cared little for anatomical correctness (that was my guess). But Beanie-boy knew better. He took one look and said “It’s a Kentrosaurus, mummy”. I Googled. He’s right.

Which is all a bit of important context for me telling you that Beanie-boy thought the Orlov museum was absolutely amazing. If you want to find out why you can read the full post here.
