Here's an electronic music program of a day in the life of Kakalooshu, a titanic Amphicoelias Fragilimus of the Tithonian age. Listen only on a quality stereo! Otherwise the stomping feet and mightily swinging tail of Kakalooshu will instead sound like the teeny tappings of Epidexipteryxes.

The day begins as pterosaurs swoop and soar amid the echoes of Jurassic canyons, the sun beating down relentlessly. Soon, in the distance, come the thunderous footsteps of the enormous Amphicoelias, Kakalooshu, swinging his mighty tail and stomping through the vegetation. Other dinosaurs step aside as Kakalooshu makes his way, occasionally craning his very long neck to assess his surroundings. Finally, Kakalooshu stops and begins to explore the forest, searching and gazing with swings of his neck up, down, north, south, in all directions and dozens of feet at a time in a single movement. He gains his direction and travels on, the heavy swings of his tail now cracking sonic booms as he whips its end faster than the speed of sound.

Soon enough, once again, Kakalooshu pauses in his journey, this time changing his smooth neck-craning motions into staccato turns and glances at the flying creatures and wild flora before beginning his walk with a new, irregular gait, punctuated again by swinging hind quarters and sonic boom tail whips. Much like dancing.
