Not a dinosaur!?

So, I feel a little deceived to discover that Brontosaurus, ONE HUNDRED AND SIX YEARS AGO, was determined to actually be an Apatosaurus. It wasn't a new species - so basically it is just a nickname for another species.

But, kids LOVE Bronotauruses. I LOVE BRONTOSAURUSES! Well, I guess now I love the Apatosaurus.

But, to parapharse Gould, there really are more important things to get outraged about.

We must have both been reading the same news story because I just found this out a week or two ago. It was very disturbing for me as well since I'd like to think I know an above average amount of knowledge about dinosaurs.
