Re: our lady of the sauropods

        It can also be found in a collection called "The Science-Fictional 
Dinosaur" along 
with several other excellent short stories.  One of the best is the 
first, "The Wings of a Bat" by Poul Anderson, the story about a doctor in 
a mining camp that has been sent back to the Cretaceous, who is manuvered 
into assuming responsibility for a baby Pteranodon.  In addition to being 
extrtemely funny, the story is remarkably realistic in portraying animal 
behavior.  I still have the copy I have cherished since I was an obnoxious 
little dinosaur nut (don't say it, Jerry).
