I'm under the impression there are a few dino nuts round here so what the hey, let's discuss anything and everything dinosaur-related :)

My favourite's always been T.Rex. First dinosaur I was ever exposed to as a child and even now in my adult years, there's quite a bit of discussion surrounding the animal's behaviour, its relatives, etc...

Iguanadon was always my fave as a kid.

I think I knew that; rings a bell - though I don't remember why I liked it.  Might've been the thumbs.

Those might've been a form of defense, or perhaps even a means of foraging for food.

Meat-eating bull; that thing had arms smaller than T.Rex if you can believe that.

Next to the T-Rex and the Raptor, I loved the Spino when I was wee:

I'd be more concerned with the jaws.

Speaking of which, I was reading an article on the web the other day about T.Rex apparently not having the strongest bite of any animal in history anymore; it comes in at 2nd place behind Dunkleosteus, an armoured fish of about 350 million years ago.

This fish could snap its jaws shut with 12 000 lbs. of force vs. T.Rex with only 3 000.

Nah, how did he manage to get the band aids out of the packets and put them on?   Very fiddly.
