Haven't seen other members of the dracorex family, but Dracorex Hogwartsia is a gorgeous gorgeous hunk of bones, not to mention a controversial one which is always good. I love that Leaellynasaura is named after the daughter of the palaeontologist that discovered it (named Leallyna) , even funnier he's other son then got jealous his sister had a dinosaur and he hadn't so the next one he found he named Timimus (which translates to Tim's mimic, meaning this dinosaur looks like Tim) just to shut his kid up.
Which means that if I ever have kids my main concern in naming them will be how good their names look in dinosaur form, in case I ever want to name a new species I discover after them.

Any love for Microraptor, arqueopterix, dracorex, or Leaellynasaura?

Psst Noelle there are no brontosaurus any more, the scientists figured out it was a mistake in identification, if I'm not mistaken the same species was named twice, so brontosaurus is actually Apatosaurus

I was definitely the biggest science nerd as a young kid so of course I loved dinos. Most young boys my age, if they like dinos at all T Rex was their favorite. I was different. Having watched way too much Bill Nye and Magic school bus, and also having a mother who felt reading was especially important, I loved the Triceratops. Still to this day my favorite animal.

...Wow I really killed this place, who knew a turtle could do so much damage? Actually I am now very glad to have dug the smelly turtle, a month or so after we got it they found a fossilized one, which I have been removing from the stone block for the last month (it is extremely fun, in a paleontologic way) and because I worked on that other one I can now identify all the bones on this one.

In other great news, starting next Monday I'm going to spend 10 days digging dinosaur eggs with volunteers from all around the world.
If you would like to do something like that, the Museum of Lourinha (in Lourinha, Portugal) has digs every summer and takes volunteers from all around the world, no experience required and they even provide you with the room to stay.
They also take volunteers all year round to work in the lab, preparing the fossils (although then you would have to find your own accommodation, but it's a small town so rooms should be cheap or maybe you can crash with one of the Phds).
So write the museum a letter and come join us.

Kids, let me warn you, life has a palaeontologist is not has glamorous has you think. I've been working since January at the best dinosaur museum in my country, up until this point it had been very cool, i did all sorts of stuff, like glueing prehistoric sea turtle shells back together (the worlds most difficult puzzle), assembling bird skeletons, looking for microfossils under the microscope (I found a new order of saw fish!) and going to the field to search for stuff. Today was not a good day, we had to go fetch some turtle bones the palaeontologist had in a maceration chamber (a place were you leave animals to decompose so you can collect the bones) , unfortunately the turtle hadn't finished decomposing yet so there was still lots of something that can no longer be described as meat in the bag; the smell was indiscriminately bad and we spent the day removing bones from the gunk; I have washed my hands with 6 types of soap already and I still can't get the smell out of my hands...

I love dinosaurs!!!! I had a huge collection of models and toys when I was a kid.
My childhood was slightly ruined, however, when I learned that there is considerable proof that some dinosaurs, such as velociraptors, had feathers...

Rana, I totally agree with LBT. The first one, amazing, others, not so much. Apparently they're on their seventeenth or something. D:

And I love LOVE Jurassic Park, but I'm sad how wrong they got some of the dinos. Mainly the raptors. Velociraptor is NOT that big!
Yay dinos!
