is a strange picture that is not easy to pin down as a fake.
fossils are rare and incomplete, so there is not much to compare
this picture with. The dinosaur in the picture looks a little
forced, but it has shadow in the right areas and seems to fit
behind the edge of the hut quite well.
cannot know what color hylaeosaurs were, of course, because
colors do not fossilize. But the major problem with this photo
is that the blue patches on the hylaeosaur's body are known to
be armor spikes, and the spikes do not show in this photo at
all. In fact, they look more like a flat hand-grenade pattern in
this picture. This is enough to expose it as a fake
even though Hylaeosaurus was herbivorous (it didn't eat
meat), if you were that child sitting in the village, wouldn't
you be running for your life?
