As we’re rumbling through Jurassic June, I felt we needed to add some variation to our dinosaurs with a cartoon Pterodactyl. Why choose to do a cartoon Pterodactyl? Not strictly a dinosaur, but one of the flying reptiles and is synonymous with what we have in mind when we think of prehistoric times. This particular […]
Talk about a living tank – this cartoon Ankylosaurus is that and then some! Even his eyelids were armoured!
