We continued our DiNovember celebrations this week, first by suggesting seven dinosaurs (and one walrus) that you should definitely follow on Twitter, then by catching up with our old friend Philosoraptor (who ponders the imponderable so you don’t have to!) and then by picking out our favourite dinosaurs.
