There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff — we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.
If everyone seeing this today donates $5, we will meet our goal for 2018.

|Plain Monkey Business|
Brachylophosaurus , or b-chizzle as known by the scientific community, was a large hadrosaur (family Hadrosauridae) that lived during the Cretaceous period. It fed primarily on horsetails, and weirdly enough rotting wood.
Brachies have yielded a fairly large amount of well, preserved fossils, but none like Leonardo (or as lame-o prudes call him, specimen JRF 115H), a dinosaur mummy of sorts. Thanks to the magical process of fossilization, many of its skin, muscle, organ, organ contents and even parasites in its stomach have been used as a cast and replaced with rock, showing what could never bee seen before with mortal eyes. Such a monumental discovery shows the lifestyle of not just Leo, but how hadrosaurs lived and the ecosystem of past earth.
