I'd always assumed it was a dragon.

But now that I see the poll options, I can sort of understand why it might look like a dinosaur. However I think dragons have yellow tummies. Don't know of any dinosaurs with that coloration.

And crocodile's front legs aren't that short.

Wow, you've put a lot of thought into this! lol I'd never considered the yellow tummy thing.... :hmm:

As for the legs, I'd never noticed them before, but now I've looked, I don't think anything's front legs are that short! :rolleyes: :p

Actually, now you've mentioned it, I think it was the proportion of legs/body etc that first tilted me towards thinking it may be a dinosaur...hmmm...:hmm:

I might change my mind now I see what you mean, I did think when I saw the options the same as you but I thought I always thought dragon so I'm sticking with that. But it does look like your little t-rex.

Excellent point!

It must be a T-Rex.

Which, actually, would probably make more sense, anyway. Given that one of the most noticable things about T-Rex was it's enormous, and many teeth.

I always thought it was a dragon... maybe the wings are folded over behind its back so we can't see them :confused:

Though I recently got a complaint e-mail asking what a spooky crocodile is doing on a dental phobia website (well, I'd love to say that it was a well-thought-out and very clever symbolic representation of something or other, but the easy answer is it was included in the logo maker :p)

It s T REX, obviously, Geeeee you people ! I've ALWAYS thought it was a T REX a) because I am clever :p b) because T REX was renowned for his teeth, being a massive predator and carnivore c) I thought letconnect had deliberately chosen T REX due to his well known set of gnashers - but clearly that wasn't the case :ROFLMAO:

How funny, the simple answer to this is, show it to a child and they will give the answer, I don't think any of us has a clue, we are all guessing. ;)
