    At least most of it looks proportionate, though I've always hated the prosciutto color pattern Saurian went with. I will give them credit though, they're one of the few outfits that actually changed their T. rex model to match the science instead of forcing the science to meet their fetishes.

      While we're on the subject, does something as big as a T. rex still need camouflage? is it a case of the juveniles/sub-adults being well camouflaged, but they gain more colors as they become bigger? Then as adults you'll see bright patterning like in

        The purpose of camouflage is not to become invisible. The purpose is to break up your silhouette and make you more difficult to identify and just fall into background noise.

        Consider this: Human visual systems are very good. Not the best of the best, but still good. However, even our eyes are easily tricked into becoming lazy and missing things right in front of us. There is a phenomenon known as "Road Hypnosis" where drivers will stop consciously viewing the road in front of them and drive on literal autopilot. This results in motorcycle and bicycle fatalities, because despite being literally right in front of them drivers do not expect anything other than cars on the road and so our visual system ignores motorcyclists completely.

        tl;dr camouflage relies on prey and predators being complacent and lazy, so even a small amount helps.

              not sure that applies to other animals. They don't seem to expect things most of the time, just react to whatever's there.

              I know it's forbidden in biology to pretend humans differ from other animals, but imagination and expectation seem to be mostly human traits.

                It 100% does apply to other animals. Humans are not special. The difference is really in their own individual sensory sensitivities (like a dog wouldn't fail to notice a certain smell, but may completely miss something visually; or a deer might never fail to miss a noise, but fail to see someone on the other side of a window - both situations I've experienced first hand).

                You can not prove this, or even competently theorize about it. An expectation does not need language to exist. Self awareness doesn't even need language to exist. Thought can occur entirely as internal sensory hallucinations and intuition.

                Pavlov proved it easily.

                animals don't have the imagination to expect things. They can be conditioned to expect things, and often are. But they don't go through life imagining what their day will be like, and they can be programmed like simple robots

                Pavlov proved a physiological reaction dumbshit. The exact same conditioning works on you regardless of your conscious expectations. You have a tiny, tiny mind and can't understand how thought and classical conditioning are separate. Operant conditioning on the other hand requires some thought and can be misinterpreted. Operant conditioning REQUIRES expectations to function.

                The greatest mistake of behavioral studies was the statement "that there is no need to appeal to an internal apparatus" because that apparatus functions at all times. The old protties figured that any unexpected and undesired result arose from low intelligence if it were an animal, but in humans it would be conscious resistance on principal. And soon it will be a mental illness and it will be denied that your resistance was ever voluntary, just a disorder. Because if you were functioning correctly you would automatically behave correctly if the conditioning were refined enough. Resistance would be irrational, an error. You would need drugs to calm your dysfunctional emotions.
                >Proof, free will is a lie, now be happy like we tell you to be happy.

                People following common sense have always found that assuming an internal apparatus, a mind, yields more reliable results with all things that clearly have at least a shitty one and reduces the chance of encouraging unwanted and unexpected behaviors. Unfortunately this process requires yielding and compromising, which in the mindset of those that do not deserve their authority, all false prophets of false religions and weak, most likely inbred, funny looking men appointed to undeserved positions, is failure to prove their worth. The dog heels when they say heel, and you lose your career when you say the wrong thing. There is no discussion, damnit, obey!

                classical conditioning is by definition entirely involuntary. the effects it has on your voluntary thought can be disturbing as you try and reconcile the stuff your body is doing for no clear reason.

                You’re self deluding. Yes, involuntary conditioning works on you. Your entire being can be conceptualized as a mechanical system and manipulated by someone else using classical conditioning and psychiatric drugs as if it is not believed that you have free will or real self awareness. And this works. And people richer and smarter than you have been researching it and slipping it into mainstream medicine with the goal of correcting unhappy and unproductive workers and soldiers.

                But because you do have free will, if the conscious mind is not bargained with it has unintended consequences like severe emotional instability, crippling fears, and apparently senseless acts of aggression.

                Humans have richer awareness than any animal and more sophisticated abstract thought (to a fault) but the essence of thought and will is present in almost everything. It’s almost impossible for intelligence to evolve without it because a capable mind considers itself.

                I believe there exists a class of humans with abilities you are incapable of recognizing because you assume everyone is just like you. And to be fair most people are like you.

                but if you observe differences in human accomplishments and consider your own accomplishments fairly when compared to others I think you'll see that you might be typical, but you are not exceptional. And the people producing most of the differences between the human state and that of other animals are almost nothing like you.

                If you questioned your own beliefs as quickly and as easily as you question mine you'd find I'm right. More importantly you assume I have emotions that cause my beliefs, which indicates your beliefs are rooted in emotion. And that's fine. Your beliefs are spoon fed to you by others and you do not question them. In fact you react with anger when anyone dares question them.

                Dinosaurs had much better visual acuity than deer. They likely relied very heavily on sight, and its primary purpose was either spotting prey or spotting predators. They presumably were incapable of having their senses dampened by expectations, as they don't have the part of the brain that expects things. That part of the brain was used to smell and see in dinosaurs. Not much else.

                They do have expectations, Just not expectations that involve complex things like "tomorrow there will be more food" or "tomorrow I won't have to run from predators." If a deer looks around, he has two expectations: 1. Something vaguely out there may be dangerous. What is not important, but "something". And 2. If number one doesn't exist, then the deer can go about whatever they were doing safely."

                If the deer doesn't spot the cougar, the deer will have an expectation of safety.

                not noticing danger is not the same as expecting safety.

                their failure to see something dangerous the first time around doesn't predict their failure to see it when it's much closer.
