Mating ritual displays are common throughout the modern animal kingdom, and it's a safe bet dinosaurs needed to expend a little energy of their own to attract a mate.
Here we imagine through the magic of computer graphics an encounter between a showy, uptempo gigantoraptor and its intended. We've taken some liberties with the music to which the dino was dancing -- there's just no telling what song was really in its head.
Gigantoraptor lived some 85 million years ago, during the Late Cretaceous, and it could reach about 26 feet long. As we see here, its mating dance must have caused a ruckus, especially for any critters living in the ground beneath the show.
