    I'm being a total nitpick, but I'm refering mostly to the "mannerisms" of these animations :D They're too human, like "rawr? aaah, rawr!" *nods dinosaur head!*
    Animal body language is very difficult to just guess though. Lion King, the new Planet of the Apes movies, King Kong, they all managed such good results by meticulously studying the real animals for months on end. With extinct animals, that is not really an option...
    With fiction, it's easyer to get away with it anyway, like Jurassic Park and T. rex's "power-roar!"-poses through half the movie. There is very little reason that a real, living T would walk around roaring like that (there's even interpretations of internal skull, brain cavity etc, suggesting it made "bleepy"-sounds, like a big, fat bird, and would sound absolutely ridiculous in real life. Not very fit for the rainy climax in JP)

    of course

    True, but I guess that they had to make guesses to fill out the gaps AND make it entertaining. It's not like we know the head mannerisms are wrong either.

    Fuck off Vergil

    I'm probably demanding too much, but I always wanted to see something that reminded me of the nature docus from tv. It's difficult for an animator, basically an art-geek, to really imagine real nature - such as two lions trying to weigh down a wildebeest, who tries to defy them simply by standing, trembling
    Or two felines fighting, their movements so fast, they just blur back and forth

    Did you see Lions and Hyenas, by any chance? Nat Geo special from 92 I think

    From the docu, the charging lion is Ntwadumela - He who greets with fire!

    Sometimes I think it would be pretty awesome to explore those times ... but then ... I am also thinking ...


    Nope.


    Nope. Nope.


    Nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope ...
    *I know the last image isn't prehistoric, but there was some weird mix of spider/crab thingy that had the same size ...
    Anyway, who knows what other kind of nightmares there might have been, which we havn't even found yet.

    I don't give a fuck how it would affect the environment, the eco cycle or any of that gay shit. I want every single bug on the planet exterminated.

    I consider myself *moderately* worried about bugs.
    I held a wasp in my hand once, on the bus, it kind of landed there, and I kept it there untill I was able to release it 0:Y
    I've also fed a wasp some ham, it was adorable.

    I don't like when spiders try to fight me tho. It's illogical. I'm way bigger, and they should know better. I don't like that confidence of theirs, that they actually stop to face me for a battle.

    Least of all, I dislike insects that are both bigger than a french-frie, and with that size, will drink my blood. Happened once. I spasm-cringed so hard.

    Vergil and other people who don't like insects, please avoid this; anyone else who likes insects feel free to open the spoiler.
    Risewild presents the stuff of nightmares!
    For me insects don't even hold a candle to deep sea creatures. Those are the ones that scare me... I think I am more scared of what might be down there that we never saw than the actual ones we already know about though.

    Oh yea I think as well as exterminating all insect life we need to drain the ocean and all the shit that's down there needs to die.

    Meh, bugs aren't really that scary. Those fish aren't scary, more weird. That giant fucking snake though...

    One time I resuscitated a fish by moving it through the water, so that water passed through its gills. I also stimulated its reflexes by "mimicking" swimming movements, moving it around in the water. After a couple of minutes it suddenly sprang back to life, and swam off

    I have also petted wolf fish (they are very soft) as well as rays (they are the opposite, very coarse, like sand paper)
    The wolf fish seemed completely devoid of understanding, as if all it wanted was to slowly eat my hand. Too slow to be scary though
    The ray showed actual curiousity, which fits their status as the most intelligent fish - as much as fish can be intelligent.
