Welcome to Day 8 of A Dino a Day Strikes Back, celebrating the paperback release of CHRONAL ENGINE, and the new editions of NINJAS, PIRANHAS, AND GALILEO and TOFU AND T.REX!
Today we feature a fishy (heh) interlude: PIRANHAS RULE! Shirt is from zazzle.com.
Photos were taken at the Texas Memorial Museum, where it's about more than just dinosaurs. During the Mesozoic, central Texas was part of the coast of the Western Interior Seaway, and so was home to some rather large aquatic critters. Alas, piranhas don't seem to have been around back then, but one of my favorite fish with razor sharp teeth, Xiphactinus, was. Scroll down for pics!
