Roof Lizard

I have transitioned from my Blue Period to my Dinosaur Period.


This stegosaurus (such strange looking creature, I can barely picture it as a living animal, let alone being the size of an elephant and even the vague notion of it basking in the sun on a rooftop is hilarious) is part of what is known as the British Museum of Natural History series of model dinosaurs, from a company called Invicta. I believe they've been discontinued, but I always liked their simplicity and their faux realism (there's no way to tell the actual texture of dinosaur skin but these toys fake it pretty good). I only had the big red T-Rex when I was a kid (see the last Long Year) but bought a selection of other beasties when I saw them on eBay during one of my nostalgia safaris.


Anyway. Dinosaurs are awesome. I recommend everyone have a Dinosaur Period every once in a while.
