Bernard Most combined fact and fun as he points out the remarkable similarities between animals of today and dinosaurs of yesterday. Is a rhinoceros a dinosaur cousin? A rhinoceros reminds Most of a triceratops as he examines nineteen modern animals and describes the dinosaurs they resemble in appearance or behavior. Is a giraffe a cousin of the long-necked brachiosaurus? Is an armadillo a cousin of the armored ankylosaurus? Are birds dinosaur cousins?
