What Ever Happened To Reptisaurus?

This might become a recurring thing, but bear with me for now.
So I was once again browsing PDSH and stumbled upon Reptisaurus: a giant mutant pterodactyl, awaked by nuclear testing after millenia in a state of suspended animation. (Remind you of anyone?)
Initially he saves the Earth from an alien invasion, gets no reward, gets jiggy with his mate in a quite violent fashion: so violent the military thinks they're actually fighting and decide to blow him up...


I found that last part about the Himalayas particularly interesting. Why there in particular? Reptisaurus came from a tropical desert island... wouldn't it be a bit cold for him? And ok, so he's not the smartest mutant pteodactyl in the world for falling in love with a giant tonka toy, but still to be heartbroken he's got to at least have some kind of emotional depth to him (it's not all just city-destroying sex). I think he had an ulterior motive for going to the Himalayas. He's sad, tired and alone. He's going to need some emotional stability, some peace... so maybe, just maybe...



... Reptisaurus started a well-deserved journey along the eightfold path?
I'd like to think so. The poor lad had a troubled life.
Thanks for reading!

There are no coincidences my Son.

Or...

This is what people who have no knowledge of the Theory of Large Numbers would consider to be a coincidence.
