We’re too busy in our lab to concoct any sort of dinosaur themed memorabilia, but the guys who helped us out with our web design and graphics have been releasing some very nice dino related items. Here’s a few of my favorites:
How to Choose a Pet Dinosaur -- produced on a lovely 11x17 inch print
Pterodactyl Springs Summer Camp TShirt
Man Walking Dinosaur Messenger Bag
T-Rex Tote Bag
Things are usually pretty sleepy at this time of year around the hatchery. The wintery weather makes our cold blooded residents sluggish, and Enid and I like to decorate the hatchery for the season. We think the dinosaurs appreciate it when we keep things festive during the holidays.
We were quite surprised to wake up from an eggnog-induced stupor this morning to see such a flood of requests for our dinosaurs. Before everyone gets over-excited, please keep in mind that we only breed dinosaurs with the highest ethical standards. We’re definitely not running some sort of carnal sweatshop for pterosaurs here! (They actually don’t sweat, in case you were wondering, I was being figurative.)
In any case, we appreciate the imaginative correspondence we’ve been getting from some of our prospective adoptive families. I thought I’d take the time to share our fave:
“I want a special kind of dinosaur nobody else has. I wanna be able to ride it to school like a boss I want my dinosaur to come with cupholders and a heater. Maybe an umbrella too. Also to be litter trained like a tamed kitten. And can my dinosaur change colors? He needs to be able to play my ipod music whenever he opens his mouth when he’s plugged in. He also needs to live off of burritos from Chipolte and his poop is poptarts. Oh and he needs to speak perfect spanish, english (with a british accent please), french and chinese. He needs to be able to dance everytime he hears WIGGLE WIGGLE WIGGLE WIGGLE WIGGLE YEAH! And know how to play dead, fetch,and roll over. So yeah get back to me on my dino and how much he’ll cost me 🙂 Oh. and might I add his name needs to be ThatFuckingEpicDinosaurSteve. And he needs to be able to respond to that. SO EMAIL ME BACK ASAP. I’m a loner at school and need my dinosaur to make me popular and get me laid.”
Maria, we expect to have some new hatchlings soon, we’ll keep you posted. Thanks to Smosh for sharing our site. If you’re considering taking home a dinosaur, don’t miss our educational comic strip on dinosaur care.

Although it’s scientifically inaccurate, Enid and I got a good chuckle out of this little image by Aled Lewis.
Not entirely factual (velociraptors aren’t that big or scary—stop by the hatchery some time to see for yourself), but fun none the less!

I don’t want to give too much away, but let’s just say a certain Australian media mogul just commissioned us to breed some megalodons to inhabit the moat at his new summer castle.
Enid and I don’t normally work with aquatic breeds, so this is sure to be an exciting challenge. We’ll post pictures of the new cuties once we’ve cracked their genetic code.
Picking the perfect dinosaur for your family is an important decision. Since most people are more familiar with choosing a dog, we’ve put together this handy infographic explaining how our dinosaurs compare to more traditional housepets.
