Dinopit is a project of Dinosaur passion started by Amy and continued by Scott.
As a kid I was never the girlie girl, I hated dresses and bows and would much rather leaf through a dino book or play with the neighborhood kids He-man toys. While I was always intrigued by dinosaurs I was raised to believe that people should have “sensible” jobs that easily paid the bills and paleontology was not one of those jobs.
As a grown woman I often wish I had pursued a career in paleontology and out of a desire to indulge the kid in me I decided to begin DinoPit.com.
What should you know about me? I’m a British ex-pat, my favorite dinosaur is Parasaurolophus, I love to laugh and I’m simultaneously intrigued by and terrified of Velociraptors. You should probably also know that my face is not always so…scrunchy.
It is my hope that through DinoPit.com I can share with you my love for dinosaurs as well as spark in you the drive to pursue a career in paleontology if you are so inclined.
The Dr. is my other half who so patiently puts up with my blabbering on about dinosaurs just about every minute of the day.
The Dr. seems to have no real interest what so ever in dinosaurs or anything remotely prehistoric. He much prefers movie watching in his spare time (no, even those aren’t dinosaur related movies,) riding motorcycles and eying fast cars.
What should you know about the Dr.? He is rarely mentioned here at DinoPit.com but if you follow me on Twitter or on Facebook you may see a mention of him now and again. You should probably also know that he is not actually a featureless black silhouette who always wears a hat and a tie.
The Dr. also hopes that you enjoy DinoPit.com but mostly because it will stop me asking for his advice on how to keep readers coming back to my site.
Snorasaurus is the only child of the family. Born in 2001, he’s getting up there in years but never hesitates to keep me company while researching dinosaurs.
Snorasaurus spends most of his time showing off his snoring skills on his cozy bed conveniently located next to my desk. While he has yet to give me any indication as to whether he is pro-dinosaur or not, I’m fairly sure he’d stand with the Dr. on the issue.
What should you know about Snorasaurus? He’s a black Labrador who has held a place in our hearts since he was 8 weeks old. He loves anything edible (except bananas) and loves sleeping on the Dr.’s side of the bed.
Snorasaurus can’t read so he has no idea what DinoPit.com is, but support for me means extra snacks for him.
