Re: addendum: vultures & predation
The bird in question (Gypaetus barbatus = bearded vulture) lives on the
Balkans peninsula (Europe), too, but is extremely rare. It favors bone
marrow, which it gets by throwing the bones from the air.
(The biggest European true vulture Gyps fulvus, lives on the Balkans, too.)
Bearded vulture also uses a kind of "tools"- stones for breaking open stolen
An intriguing idea : Imagine the array of small dinosaurs- egg thieves -
with agile hands - do you wonder if they used some kind of tools?
Speculating further: maybe alvarezsaurids used their peculiar hands for
opening eggs or breaking open the turtle shells?
