Dinosaur Thaumatrope

After my first attempt at making a thaumatrope (optical illusion spinning toy for kids) I kept playing with some mini designs. Here’s the first – a cute little guy… ‘God made me too’… love that little puff of smoke… enjoy!  :)

POP QUIZ:  Do you know what two creatures are being described by God Himself in this passage of Scripture when He is talking to Job? It extends over nearly two chapters, so I’ve shortened it a little. Click on the link to read God’s full descriptions for yourself. One lives on land; the other in the ocean. Some commentaries suggest hippopotamus or elephant… really?! Maybe there is a better explanation. An extinct one

“Behold now behemoth, which I made [Note! Who made it? God did] with thee [with who? You, i.e. humans]; he eats grass as an ox. Lo now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in the navel of his belly. He moves his tail like a cedar: the sinews of his stones are wrapped together. His bones are as strong pieces of brass; his bones are like bars of iron. He is the chief of the ways of God: he that made him can make his sword to approach unto him. Surely the mountains bring him forth food, where all the beasts of the field play. He lies under the shady trees, in the covert of the reed, and fens. The shady trees cover him with their shadow; the willows of the brook compass him about. Behold, he drinks up a river, and hastes not: he trusts that he can draw up Jordan into his mouth. He takes it with his eyes: his nose pierces through snares. Can you draw out leviathan with an hook? or his tongue with a cord which you let down? Can you put an hook into his nose? or bore his jaw through with a thorn?… Who can open the doors of his face? his teeth are terrible round about. His scales are his pride, shut up together as with a close seal. One is so near to another, that no air can come between them. They are joined one to another, they stick together, that they cannot be sundered. By his neesings a light doth shine, and his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning. Out of his mouth go burning lamps, and sparks of fire leap out. Out of his nostrils goes smoke, as out of a seething pot or caldron. His breath kindles coals, and a flame goes out of his mouth. In his neck remains strength, and sorrow is turned into joy before him. The flakes of his flesh are joined together: they are firm in themselves; they cannot be moved. His heart is as firm as a stone; yea, as hard as a piece of the nether millstone. When he raises up himself, the mighty are afraid…”  Job 40-41
