Yes, the orange T-rex is silly, but the story is good, so get over it. Twenty years down the line, the special effects we have now will look “silly.” What makes it endure are the stories and the characters, not the CGI.
like seriously their brain-to-body size ratio is equal to that of a chimpanzee
They vocalize anger, sadness, or happiness in response to things
they are scary smart at solving puzzles
some ravens stay with their mates until one of them dies
they can remember faces
SIDENOTE HERE BECAUSE HOLY SHIT. They did an experiment where these guys wore masks and some of them fucked with crows. Pretty soon the crows recognized the masks = douchebag. But the nice guys with masks they left alone. THEN, OH WE’RE NOT DONE, NO SIR crows that WEREN’T EVEN IN THE EXPERIMENT AND NEVER SAW THE MASK BEFORE knew about mask-dudes and attacked them on sight. THEY PASSED ON THE FUCKING INFORMATION TO THEIR CROW BUDDIES.
They remember places where crows were killed by farmers and change their migration patterns.
Why the fuck is that scary? That’s pretty cool if you ask me. Crows are awesome.
Bring on the Crowpocalypse
There’s also crows that have learned to not only use cars to help them crush nuts they want to eat, but they’ve learned that if they drop the nuts in a crosswalk and wait for the green pedestrian light, they can walk out and eat the nut without danger of being run over.
