Re: K-T Theories

That parses, but I'm not sure how good a model rabbits are
for dinosaurs--rabbits are (notoriously) rapid breeders, and
a single pair can produce a _lot_ of rabbits in the course of
a year (see the Fibonacci sequence for approximate numbers,
though that assumes immortal rabbits with no predators); we
don't, as far as I know, have good numbers on how rapidly
any dinosaur bred, but they were large and didn't reach reproductive
age as quickly as rabbits.
