Description: The Brontosaurs on Skull Island were a bit more omnivorous than scientists would lead you to believe; this one attacked a raft and ate some sailors. Not that much meat for a Brontosaurus, really; kind of like when you eat a meatball, especially if that meatball has tiny crunchy bones and is screaming.

Description: Sometimes, when you go on a boat ride you get sucked into a wormhole through time. And if you are super lucky, you'll get to see a Brontosaurus, and it won't stomp you into a meat patty. But don't count on it, that would be silly!
