So. On August 10, 1821, Missouri achieved Statehood. We salute Missouri therefore. A fine state, full of fine folk, who, We gather, prefer the product to the advertisement.
You may be less aware of the Hypsibema Missouriensis, Missouri’s state dinosaur. In actual fact, Rhinos were not around when this critter was in action, but it makes a good picture, and at ‘Your Inner Rhino’, that counts for a lot. One thing to notice is, it had a thousand teeth, which is a lot, for grinding up vegetation. Impressive dentition.
Rhinos average about 28 teeth.In case you wondered.
