since the gemara says that only kosher animals have horns, was triceratops a kosher animal?
"Spiritual wants and instincts are as various in the human family as are physical appetites, complexions, and features, and a man is only at his best, morally, when he is equipped with the religious garment whose color and shape and size most nicely accommodate themselves to the spiritual complexion, angularities, and stature of the individual who wears it."

"The despotism of heaven is the one absolutely perfect government. An earthly despotism would be the absolutely perfect earthly government, if the conditions were the same; namely, the despot the perfectest individual of the human race, and his lease of life perpetual. But as a perishable perfect man must die, and leave his despotism in the hands of an imperfect successor, an earthly despotism is not merely a bad form of government, it is the worst form that is possible."

-Mark Twain

As a bird that eats only plants, it might be that it is a kosher animal, but since we don't have a tradition of eating it...

I read an article stating that the triceratops is the young version of another dinosaur.

You're confusing it with a Pteradactyl ...a triceratops was a three horned animal like a rhino.

It is said that this exceedingly ugly creature is a direct descendant of a mutant Triceratops. As she is not kosher, we can assume that Triceratops is not as well.

Kosher. Had an awesome rack of unicorn the other day.


Does it taste better than dragon? I used to buy frozen dragon with the Badatz Sheretz Yishmuel hechsher on it for Shabbos, and then it changed to Eida haCharuvis and my erev rav told me not to buy it anymore.

after eight days (according to some opinions) you're good, at least as far as age-related issues go.

Or unicorns, for that matter.

no, sav, you're not kosher. sorry.

If the narwhal I've been dining on are kosher than the unicorns probably are too.

Actually, pterodactyls are lizards. Birds in general are considered by scientists to be the last living dinosaurs. I have my doubts about the veracity of science, so I assume that what we know as dinosaurs are just birds that maybe we don't know about.

Their skeletons all share many unique features of avian anatomy, it's very interesting stuff.
