This template is used to mark inaccurate paleontological restorations. This template automatically adds images to Category:Inaccurate paleoart and appropriate subcategories. The reason= parameter is used to specify the reason, or else viewers are referred to the talk page. The parameters historical=, dinosaur=, and skeleton= are yes/no switches that are used for categorization and customize the template text. The dinosaur subclade parameters must be used in addition to dinosaur=, to provide more specific auto-categorization.
