Yes, it seems that overnight, the small-headed spiky-'saur was given a fashionable makeover—complete with rainbow leggings, an eye patch, scrunchies, bracelets, and a tail pom-pom! According to note left at the scene, the adorable accessories were knit by someone called "Jenn."

I love yarn.  I make blankets and donate them to the Red Cross.  Yarn is so comforting.  I bet those animals wished they really had yarn blankets when the ice age moved through!
