@SuricrasiaOnline modern cryptobiologists agree that what are commonly referred to as "dragons" are actually several different families of convergently evolved animal groups. one, grouped with the sauropods, displays scales and feathers like their dinosaur kin. another is more closely related to the modern taxon containing snakes and lizards, displaying many traits in common with monitor lizards and large snakes. yet a third is actually a mammal group, displaying hair, feather-like fur and even mammaries

of course "reptile furry" was an unacceptable term from the get-go, especially when applied to dragons who are reptile-like, but whose exact taxonomy is unknown

the shift in usage occured in the late 1800s, just as "scalie" became the prominent term for "reptile furry" about two thirds of a century prior

fact: "fish furry" is an archaic term, the modern way to say it is "fishy"

@sc I made this webpage from scratch (save for the advertisements) so it's actually only a day old

@kit yeah heck I love the look of old fixed-width webpages and I would've done that for my main suricrasia online site but at the same time I wanted it to be usable on mobile. since this is a side project I have given myself permission to do whatever I like :3

the frame of this story is you're reading it through an archive tool like the wayback machine but I still need to make that part of it

also the repeated buttons are intentional, they're going to be broken images eventually

please point any inconsistencies or ways to make it look more authentic

I know there is an alignment issue but this is actually intentional because you'd be hard pressed to find any website back then without at least one layout/css problem

@envgen it's supposed to say "RSS" but I like ass better
