Re: dinosaur anatomy

>From _Discover_ magazine, December 1996, _A Cold, Hard Look at Dinosaurs_,
by Virginia Morell, page 107:

"When Hillenius looked at birds, he found evidence of turbinates only as
far back as 70 million years -- a little under half the time since they
originated from dinosaurs.  And when he finally looked at dinosaurs
themselves, he found none -- which meant, he concluded, that the dinosaurs
were not warm-blooded."
