FOUND: Medieval Dinosaurs!

Curious carvings on a church in the mountainous north of the Republic of Georgia look like…dinosaurs?

CHR Comment: Blogger Gemma Tarlach discovered these wonderful carvings on the belfry façade of the Church of Tsminda Sameba (Holy Trinity). The carvings date from the fifteenth century and likely represent salamanders. But they do look remarkably like sauropod dinosaurs. The second link below takes you to an article about the church.
