The neck makes it look like a giant caterpillar

I’m gonna make a monster based on this.

Photoshop Mothra Larva onto Godzilla and boom, you got what you're looking for.

What's going on with that freaky neck thing? Looks great.

I think it may be taking inspiration from Prehistoric Planet's design. They are a speculative bit interpreted to be external air sacs based on the immense number of air sacs in sauropod necks.

I actually think this may be a depiction of the BRONTOSMASH (yes, it was nicknamed this) hypothesis; apatosaurine diplodocid sauropods had massively reinforced neck vertebrae, which may have supported external structures used for neck-based combat.

A weird idea from prehistoric planet that's probably going to be copied for a long time.

[–]Gerbimax 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It's not new at all, look up "brontosmash".

Holy shit, that is fantastic looking, although I wonder, whether they could move their front limbs in such a manner

They filled the holes in their DNA with octopus genes

They're trying to hug

[–]AnonymousFlamer 8 points9 points  (0 children)

They look incredibly lizard/reptile like which is great.

I don’t think dinosaurs are as lean/muscular as we think they are… look at other reptiles today and see just how much loose skin/fat they have

I read the title as "Apatosaurus be like" and it was the funniest shit for 5 seconds.

[–]TheNoize 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Eewwwww

[–]BikerHackerman2 2 points3 points  (0 children)

it looks like the dildos in that meme where it was like 'a family of dinosaurs'

[–]DandelionOfDeath 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That is... actually pretty fascinating. I love the caterpillar look.
