Loki the dinosaur...?

This fellow here is a Medusaceratops:

His name? Lokii. More about him here. We probably all know of Loki, the mischievous god of Norse myth, but as mentioned in various interviews seen in recent Marvel comics, the man who named him was inspired by Jack Kirby's depiction of Loki!

This is kind of fantastic, I have to say. That neat double-horned helmet of Loki's has won him a permanent place in the palaeo books. Well done, you.

Loki refuses to comment, finding the prospect of his name being attached to a brainless hulk of a beast that makes thundering stomping sounds offensive.
