Nick Nick Nick, I *can't* believe you made such a blundering error;-) Surely I
don't need to tell you about the Cainozoic MTB record...
On a related topic, is anyone aware of any mammal _species_ that made it across
the K-T boundary? Some old (?60s-70s) texts state that one of the _Protugulatum_
species is known right across it - this might be the wrong place to ask, but
does anyone know any better?
LASCAUX (for those involved..)
I have !!!*FOUND*!!! a figure depicting the Lascaux 'birdman'. Looks more like
a giant owl... Says 'after Breuil', so is obviously the biz.
