Dear Scott the Paleontologist,
My son Miloh and I are fans of Dinosaur Train and as an avid fan I have some questions regarding it that I hope you can answer:
The train is a steam engine. Does it run off coal? If it does use coal is there a possibility that greenhouse gases from that could have lead to the extinction of dinosaurs? How come this isn't a theory?
If you want to explore that theory more let me know and we can co-author a paper.
Will we ever meet Shiny's real father? I mean c'mon she's blue. Mr. Pteranodon is not here dad... In fact, I have a hypothesis (an idea you can test). I think Mrs. Pteranodon kept Buddy's egg in the nest so any time Mr. brings up Shiny's real dad she can change the subject by saying something like "did we ever figure out how Buddy's egg got in the nest?"
Is there any behind the scenes footage in which after meeting a dino Buddy pretends to forget something and goes back to the dino and eats it?
That "point of fact" guy said dinosaurs didn't create art from gourds. Is that really a fact? I mean can he prove no deinonychus made gourd art?
Is it appropriate for Tiny to be singing about her "tiny place"?
I'm guessing diggers have found evidence of the train, as well as the documentary footage used in the show, but has anyone been able to figure out the technology of time travel that they used? Is that what's in Area 51? If you told me would you have to kill me? If the answer to the last question is yes I prefer not to know.
What was more upsetting to you? When you learned that dinosaurs and people didn't live at the same time ( like on the Flintstones)? Or when you found out Brontosauruses (Brontosaurii?) were fake? Either way it proves the Flintstones were a lie and it's sad either way.
For me it was the Brontosaurus thing...
I think that's it... I really do love the show. My son does too... If you discover a new dinosaur feel free to name it after him. Milohsaurus would be ok but we'd prefer MFosaurus or Emeffosaurus.
