Yesterday, we watched the sixth and final episode of the BBC’s Planet Dinosaur. Entitled “The Great Survivors”, the episode featured one dinosaur I’d not previously heard of, Nothronychus (Wikipedia entry). It instantly became my new vegan hero. Why?

Well a clip on the BBC’s website explains:

I think you can guess why I thought that was pretty awesome. Here’s a picture (from Wikipedia) of the chap:

The World Wide Fund for nature uses a panda for its logo. If I ever start some sort of vegan organisation, I’ll know what I’ll be using for my logo!
