Report: Day 151 

Benrik said I should go to my closest natural history museum and check on my favorite dinosaur to see if it was being well represented. However, the Museum of Natural History in New York closes on weekdays at about the same time I get off work. So I had to improvise. I thought maybe I could find my favorite dinosaur on some sort of virtual exhibit, but I found no mention of my favorite, the Terydactyl.

Well, what I didn't know was that the terydactyl was not a dinosaur at all. In fact it was flying lizard. And flying lizards don't count for Benricking. So I went to my next favorite dinosaur, the triceratops. And while I did not find a virtual exhibit, I did learn that triceratops means "three horned face" and that the horns were probably used both for defense and for males to attack each other to impress the lady triceratopses.

Today I will leave a message to the future.
