From appliques to graphic tees, the cats dominion over the fashion world may be on it's 9th life; there's a new "it" animal in town. It's time to get reacquainted with the Dinosaur, who has been brought back to life with the magic of fashion.
Giant brontosauruses, velociraptors, and multiple tyrannosaurus can be seen outside on the business' 8 acres and within its giant facility. The dinosaurs, which cost anywhere from $100 for a small egg to $1,800 for a large velociraptor, are made from high-grade resin, owner Billy Frazier, 74, told Chron.com Tuesday.
“I hate this stereotype that dinosaurs were evolutionary failures, that they were dim-witted, slow-moving, uninteresting animals that just sat around waiting to go extinct,” Brusatte says. “They were an empire that ruled the world for over 150 million years!”
The new finding reveals that giant dinosaurs evolved at least 30 million years earlier than sauropods like brachiosaurus or titanosaurus, changing our understanding of the huge beasts that lorded over our planet before we came along.

We’ve managed to clone a few different animals, so what’s stopping us from going full Jurassic Park and pulling some fossil DNA to make new dinosaurs? In 2014 a news article started making the rounds that claimed that a British (or sometimes Chinese) university had pulled it off. The most widely spread article said that geneticists at Liverpool’s John Moore University had successfully created a baby apatosaurus in an ostrich’s womb who they’d named Spot.

Museums and scientists increasingly lack the funds to buy dinosaur fossils, which can be auctioned off for enormous sums, an article in the scientific journal Nature yesterday (June 1) explains. This particular fossil, excavated in Wyoming between 2013 and 2015, is expected to go for €1.2 million–1.8 million (US$1.4 million–2.1 million).
