    No, they are in Rutland. Leicester only finds Kings.

    Ooooh, the people of Rutland won’t be happy! They are quite defensive about their little county! Leicester 🙂

    boring answer but if you whack the word followed by pronunciation into google it gives it phonetically

    A disappointing one is diplodocus, which I always that was “diploh docus”, in actual fact is duh-plod-uh-cus.

    Technically this is not a dinosaur, for some reason. I know this because I have a 6 year old, although his reference books don’t go into detail about classification (stupid dumbed-down pop-science).

    Ahh good old moschops – i was explaining this to my wife as we were arguing about Diplo-docus vs duh-plod-a-clus.

    She thought i was very odd when i told her it was about a bunch of dinosaurs and the worlds first flower. think she thought id been smoking something.

    I live in Street Somerset , the Icthy is our Parish Council’s logo . There have been quite a few skeletons found when there were quarries in use though obviously none anywhere near that big !

    @superficial – I believe technically dinosaurs are the “land living” ones, and these lived in the water – hence the distinction.

    Dinosaur means “terrible lizard”, Ichthyosaur means “fish lizard”. A 10m Ichthyosaur seems pretty terrible to me.
