Grallator translates to "Stilt walker" and refers to the three toed footprints from a bipedal theropod dinosaur ( That’s a two legged, three toed dino) found from the triassic period. The second half to this name is that Bobs grandfather was a Coney Island Stilt walker. But the main connection to the dino reference is the monstrosity of this wine."
