In a truly shocking development, Professor Steve Steve barely survived an attack by a vicious but unidentified dinosaur while visiting the Natural History Museum in London, England. He was rescued by three nearby science blog writers who heard his cries for help. Professor Steve was nearly ripped into ribbons and would probably have died a horrible death in the jaws of a dinosaur that was disguised as a fuzzy and cuddly stuffed toy animal.

The attacker remains undescribed in the scientific literature, so police and paleontologists are seeking your help in identifying the perpetrator (see above image).

Museum officials refused to comment.

It's hard to tell from the picture, but it may be a Tigersaurus fluffia. Is it possible to get a DNA sample from saliva left on Steve Steve?

This is undisputable proof that dinosaurs and professors walked the earth at the same time. Better call "Dr." Carl Baugh for his expert opinion on this.......

I heard it on good authority that Steve Steve was taunting the dinosaur before it attacked him. A professor should know better.

Well, JPS, sometimes anyone will crack. Prof. Sreve explained to us later that the dinosaur was a creationist and had asked "If birds evolved from dinosaurs, then why are there still dinosaurs?". On reflection, it's particularly clear why he was upset.

A libelous and defamatory accusation, I must say!

Clearly the Tyrannosauroid mistook the good doctor for a coconut.
