Whoa, check out that freaky smile! Masiakasaurus knopfleri is easily the top runner for Dinosaur Most in Need of Braces. Paleontologists think its bizarre set of outwardly pointing teeth evolved so the Masiakasaur could spear fish with its face (quite the party trick!). Also, fun fact: this dinosaur was named after Dire Straights frontman Mark Knopfler, whose music was playing as its skeleton was unearthed. Artwork by HodariNundu.
