        Pidgeons produce a milk-like substance that they regurgitate,
which is supposedly quite rich. I suppose it may have been possible
for some dino herbivores to produce such specialised vomit as well.
How would a baby sauropod have fared if this was the case? I can
just imagine the Mesozoic movie of the week - "Honey, I drowned
the kids".
