Fossils of the lesser known Bunnisaurus Rex have been found in a variety of rock formations dating to the last three million years of the Carrotaceous period, approximately 68 to 65 million years ago.

Like the Tyrannosaurus Rex, the Bunnisaurus was bipedal, with a massive skull balanced by a long heavy cotton-tipped tail and very small forearms. Unlike the Tyrannosaurus Rex, the B Rex, as they are sometimes referred to, were herbivores, feeding on the now extinct intelligent form of carrot. Further differences of note include: fluffiness and mood swings ranging from giddy to dangerously annoyed.

The Illustration Friday theme this week is “Primitive.”

    This is an all time great!! You need to have your animal idioms published, honstly.
    hey, one time I was taking care of an ancient dog back in Rhode Island, and the clients had this neglected bunny in a hutch in the backyard. It was all matted and I felt bad for it, so I took it out and started brushing and combing it. I kept hearing these low, gutteral growls and constantly looked over my shoulder to see who the heck it was. I had already put the dog in the house. Aaaaanyhoodle, it was that freakin’ bunny and he wanted a piece of me!! Now I see why he wasn’t brushed or combed. He leaped off the table and chased me all around the yard. I kid you not!! There I was screaming and laughing at the same time as Bunnicula chased me down. I finally covered him with a blanket and gently heaved him back into his hutch. He continued to lunge at me through the cage! I’m still seeing a therapist.

  8. But did they multiply as quickly as present day bunnies do, is what I want to know! Geez Linda, I’m gonna have bunny nightmares!!! LOL!! You crazy, clever chicka!

    Awesome sketch 🙂 The carrot was a nice touch

  17. Angela Says:

    The fluffy poof at the tippy top of his tail put me into a fit of giggles!!

    This makes me think of my favorite Buffy musical quote, “I have a theory. It could be bunnies!” Now I see Anya was right, some bunnies were dangerous. Yikes!

  18. Pickledog Says:

    Hee hee.. Great drawing and description of the Bunnisaurus. It’s probably best that they are extinct now.

    Fantastic! I suspect he was roommates with the fellow I have been working on for Primitive. We’ll just see…

    I wish those intelligent carrots were still around, though — the modern day ones are such a snooze.

    I like this one because it is very funny, and the way you did the rabbit looks like a dinosaur chasing a little carrot. Run Carrot Run…
