No Christmas tree would be complete without... dinosaurs!
In place of a fairy I have a Utahraptor on the top of my tree, with a Dilophosaurus climbing towards it. And yes, if you look closely, that is a Dalek between them!
As you can see, the dinosaurs on my tree are mostly therapods. (Their sticking-out arms mean they grip better round the branches.) But can you spot the obscure South American prehistoric mammal on the left?
The tree with dinosaurs, with lights deployed.
Any what would a Christmas tree be without a pygmy elephant? This one's just over 2cm long.
