Crocodile program on Discovery channel
The crocodile program was very good, except for the title:
Crocodiles: Heirs to the Dinosaurs
This title makes it seem that crocs descended from dinos.
In fact, they are dino uncles; they preceded the dinosaurs.
The only clue to why they gave it that title was the statement
(quoting from memory):
"... while the dinosaurs have died out, the crocodiles
are still around"
Even that is misleading... it ignores the bird-as-dinosaur theory.
But that still doesn't make them dinosaur "heirs".
Achut Reddy So many fossils... so little time!
