Strip by: David Morgan-Mar

T-Rex: T-Rex presents The Periodic Table:
T-Rex: 7. NITROGEN
T-Rex: Nitrogen makes up 78% of the atmosphere, yet only 3% of animal bodies.
T-Rex: True!
T-Rex: Why?! What are you afraid of, nitrogen??
Utahraptor: We breathe it in, but just breathe it all out again. It's us rejecting it!
Utahraptor: We are mean, nasty monsters.
T-Rex: So exhaling is a crime now?
T-Rex: That's not what the Vice Squad told me!
