Cause we want to hear all of your advice because I need to ask you about dinosaurs. How did you first become interested in dinosaurs books, books?
Reading about dinosaurs. Yeah. Are there different families of dinosaurs? Teach me a little bit about dinosaurs. Uh, we have sale pods sale pods right now. Those are the only two I can think of S no. Oh, that’s another thing. Oh, seems like it should be so, okay. Teach me about SPOD. What the Sam hill or Sarah pods?

Those are all Sarah pods. Yeah. And then what’s the other family fail pods. Sarah pods. Yeah. Those stuff like , gigantis some of the mostly carnivals, but some of them are on the board, like only, or whatever it’s called.
Wait, who you said gigantic SOS gigantic. So that sounds made up. Is that a real thing? Gigantic SOS. Well, it’s basically this thing as chicken. So what. It’s a chicken

Um, it’s basically looks like a white, a big white D it’s kinda white Uhhuh. so with lots of like, Well, it’s really, it’s better. It’s it’s the same as gigantic gigantic, so, okay.
It’s still the, like, they could also be like we and blue sometimes. Huh? Um, interesting. But they are also. Big and strong than key. Really? Yes. They live in, uh, like giant. They live in like packs. They, huh? So now I have a question for you. If you could be any dinosaur in the world, which one would you be?
Does it have to be a di a dinosaur? Can it be like a flying reptil or, or in erectile? Oh, flying reptiles are not the same as. No, like stuff like the tailed adapt and SWA. Those are it’s Aless bless you, huh? Yeah, it can be any of those. Uh, so it can be Marine leftal reptiles, tail or Marine reptiles. Yeah.
Um, well I would probably be Moses sous among left. Mosos. Yeah to moon. What tile? What is a Moosa sous? Well, Kyle, I need to check. Where are you getting these books at? I’ve never heard of these creatures. Dinosaurs. Sorry, dinosaurs. Forgive me. What is a Mo? Okay. So a Moosa sous is in the water. Yes. Is it like a whale, a shark, a dolphin?
Well, it’s with the size. It’s like the size of it’s basically like something like, I don’t know, as big as a PE, so it’s okay. And that is the dinosaur that you would want to be of all the dinosaurs, like the dinosaur. Or the Marine reptiles or flying reptiles or flying reptiles. I like to be the best the most.
Yeah. So that’s the one that you want to be mm-hmm yeah. Okay. Now another question, if you could have any of these dinosaurs as a pet, which one would you want? Well, I don’t want it huge, so, yeah. Yeah. But then it could take you everywhere. It could be like your car, as long as it doesn’t eat you. That would be a downside.
you’d have to get an herb before. I probably have like an, which eat plants and animals, but it, it just eats bug nice animals. Okay. So which one would you. Once it’s probably 3, 4, 9. Okay. Cause so that it’s so fast, but it, but I, so then I, it might be as fast, like as a call, so I could be in blow, go anywhere.
Yeah. And it’s an herb before, right? It’s not gonna eat you on the. No. Okay. That’s that’s a positive. Okay. Now this is a really, really important question. Hmm. You ready for it? Yeah.

Um, you’re distracted by your camera. Okay. Do you hear the question? Yes. I think be a, I think she would like a T up until being a T. Why? Cuz she has little arms. Um, and cause she says it’s so big with dinosaur, but she had to pick like, but if, but she probably say you are home for no reason, even though it’s not dinosaur.
