Hell Creek Vertebrates at Berkeley catalogue
In my brief tour through Russ's Home Page I browsed through the Hell Creek
Vertebrates at Berkeley catalogue. One listing was extremely puzzling. It
was listed as Purgatorius ceratops, Class Mammalia, Order Primates.
Hmmmm...... Is this a joke, am I a poorer biologist than my boss thinks, or
did someone really screw up the taxonomy of this specimen? It would be a
truely awsome thing to have a ceratopsian primate, but a little difficult to
visualize. They could be top heavy.
