They were very exciting.He liked their long ferocious teeth.And their long ferocious namesliketyrannosaurus and stegosaurus andmosasaurus.</p></li><li><p>Stegosaurus had spikes on its tail. Itcould use them to whack Tyrannosaurus,which had those long ferocious teeth.Mosasaurus, which lived in the sea, wasbigger and more ferocious than thebiggest shark!</p><p>The best part was that they livedlong, long, long ago, so you didn't haveto worry about them getting you.</p></li><li><p>Papa and Mama Bear thought it wasfine that Brother had this new interestand Sister Bear had no serious objection.They all went to the Bear CountryMuseum to see the dinosaur skeletons.They were tremendous. Brotherreally liked those dinosaur skeletons.</p></li><li><p>The skeleton kit had a zillion bones.Papa helped put it together whileBrother played with the models. Thetyrannosaurus model had those longteeth and the stegosaurus had sharpspikes on its tail. Brother Bearpretended they were having a terrificfight!</p></li><li><p>Brother became more and moreinterested in dinosaurs. He got moredinosaur books out of the library. Helearned about the dimetrodon, whichhad a big sail on its back. He learnedabout the brontosaurus, or thunderlizard, which was so big it soundedlike thunder when it walked.</p></li><li><p>He bought more models of dinosaurs.He drew pictures of them. He mademodels of them out of clay. There weredinosaurs all over the place. Papa,Mama, and Sister started to get a littlefed up.</p><p>Once there was a stegosaurus onPapa's chair and he sat on it.
