The megalosaurid Torvosaurus is the one of the largest predators of the Jurassic period. It rivals Tyrannosaurus in terms of size. The name Torvosaurus means 'savage lizard' and is very fitting, seeing as these ferocious carnivores prey mercilessly on anything they can catch, even taking down enormous sauropods. Torvosaurus live in savannas near floodplains, where they sometimes terrorize communities of farmers and herders.

Combat:
A torvosaurus preys upon just about everything that moves. It strategy is to charge in and bite. When attacking a smaller creature, the torvosaurus grabs it and thrashes it about until it dies.

The last 2 weeks of October were an emotional roller coaster for mah fam 'n I. We were stricken with grief 'cause my grandpa was just not feelin' too good and... Was dyin'. My mom, grandma, aunt, and my cousins flocked over to Jackson South hospital and gone there Tuesday through Friday. On Saturday, October 25, my grandfather... is no longer with us. We heartbroken, my grandma especially, and she still is. We all will miss 'im. May he rest in peace, be it in heaven, Nirvana, or Elysium.

Oh, and for the record, I'd recommend avoiding Jackson hospital altogether, cause of the following: the service is slow & unreliable, the cafeteria is freakin' cold and offers very little choice in food, and most of all, YA CAN'T TRUST 'EM!!! I mean, when there's a change in a patient's condition -ANY at all- you supposed to call us, especially when said dyin! Did they did do that? NO! We still demand justice for negligence! It's slipshod is what is! Memorial hospital does better service than that incompetent excuse for hospital staff! I should know- I work in Memorial hospital west! At least there, they do a better job providing for the patients! But I'm digressin'. Afterward, we still go to my grandma's house and then some, simply to keep her company and provide our sympathies as well.

I attended grandpa's funeral on Thursday, October 30 the next week. I may not've cried like I thought, but I was still mourning him. And we still will. Gods rest his soul.
  • Mood: Sympathy
  • Listening to: You'll be in my heart by Phil Collins
