Robert T. Bakker quotes

Fossils have richer stories to tell - about the lub-dub of dinosaur life - than we have been willing to listen to.

Stegosaurus was common only on well drained, dry soil.

Feathers predate birds.

It was not an asteroid or comet, because it would have killed everything.

Dinosaurs are the jumper cables to the human mind. Kids can't curb their enthusiasm when they're in a hall of dinosaurs and mammoths and mammoth hunters and trilobites and giant fish that could chomp up a shark. These natural objects in motion and context make kids want to read; you can't stop them from reading and thinking.

Birds evolved from a small raptor like theropod.

Since then I have held many jobs at museums in Colorado and Wyoming. I have also taught summer courses at the University of Colorado.

One of my major goals is to develop a web of the small Wyoming museums and create a major museum system. There are about eight of these museums, and they are all scattered.

One researcher just determined that African and Indian elephants make each other sick. When a new animal or plant is introduced to a habitat bad things happen. The biggest danger to native wildlife is foreign wildlife.

When looking at the evidence of feeding on large prey, you can see every size tooth from hatchling to adult in one spot. The babies may have been fed in the nest until they were full grown, like in eagles and hawks.

Land bridges were everywhere during the extinction, many species were spreading, and there were many diseases.

Also, while I was at Yale, I had a job teaching kids at the museum.

As an undergraduate I held many small jobs as an illustrator.

At Harvard I was in charge of the comparative anatomy labs.

I also discovered the only complete Brontosaurus skull.

I also got a chance to go to the American Museum in New York, which helped my interest.

I want to be the Bob DeNiro of the Jurassic.

In 1941 Richard Owen said that the dinosaurs were almost hot blooded.

The evidence is overwhelming that birds are dinosaurs.

To me it seems that the warm blooded dinosaurs replaced advanced mammal ancestors that were warm blooded, also.

Be the change that you wish to see in the world. Mahatma Gandhi

You have to enjoy life. Always be surrounded by people that you like, people who have a nice conversation. There are so many positive things to think about. Sophia Loren

I just thank God that I didn't grow up with so much money or privilege because you had to create ways to make it happen. Kim Basinger today
