So once again, while people are fighting over how they looked, nobody reals knows. Ninja unicorn riding dinosaur Dino’s are just theories and fun time make believe. We don’t even find full skeletons but we sell the idea hard.

Rather than just a general opinion. It is hard from fossils to interpret all the behaviors of extinct animals. Stating that there are no semi-aquatic ‘affinities’ in Ornithischians does not take into account the behavioral plasticity of those organisms. As an example, alligators can launch themselves about 6 feet out of the water, and they can climb trees (albeit rather clumsily). Ninja unicorn riding dinosaur If we did find an alligator skeleton in the fossil record (I know we do, just using it as an example). We may not be able determine those behaviors without a modern analogue. Though the evidence in your opinion may not be strong, it does not rule out the possibility.

I understand feeling that way because paleontology often feels deceptive in that they will have an entire skeleton and you can’t tell what’s made up/guessed and what was actual fossil found. This got me really into always trying to find out how much of each dinosaur they’d actually found vs if they found a bone fragment and built an entire dinosaur after it. After a short while you can quickly conclude that while a decent amount of paleontology is educated guess work there is much more to it than that. Many dinosaurs are remarkably complete and even if you want to second guess how they reconstructed it you still have to explain 10ft ribs and vertebrae the size of basketballs, on top of the fact that entire skeletons of many types have been found especially smaller animals.
On top of this what is harder to discount is the fact that there are thousands of different paleontologists in different countries all across the world speaking different languages that spend years coming to similar conclusions. It’s interesting to note that those that say government plays a part in what gets labeled what should know that paleontologists in the early days of paleontology in the 1800s often came to the same correct conclusions.
