Really? Exactly why is that? If you show a child an ancient bird like
_Archaeopteryx_, especially if it's standing next to "Sinosauropteryx", will
he be able to tell the difference? If you take a modern bird and break off
the keeled sternum, and stand it next to a similar sized, beaked, non-avian
dinosaur with its tail snapped off, will he be able to tell the difference?
