 I just uploaded an instructable for this but I didn't see a "dinosaur group" to add it to.   Did I miss something?   I'd like it to be in the groovy contest!

Could the dinosaur be, making a short animation, such as claymation or papermation, where the dinosaur is the main character of it?

sounds fun, good luck!

Magnelectrostatic (author)2010-02-01 made your own contest? AMAZING.

Doctor What (author)2010-02-01

 I agree.  Creating your own contest is by far one of the better user generated content ideas on the site.  Very nice indeed!
