Re: bcf vs. badd

we have neglected one obvious source of food that might drive the 
pterosaurs and the theropods up a tree to look for it:  mammals.
as i recall, some of the earliest mammal fossils are arboreal, including
primate like forms and rodent-like forms, both of which can  be very at home
in the trees.
