RE: [Fwd: Dinosaur Society]
So it is (just linked)! :-)
As far as the dinosaur/bird link, I defer to our physiology and evolution
experts, but I've seen a lot of printed, peer reviewed papers that take a
different view. :-) On that subject, I received 2 shocks this week:
1) My rather rotound tabby cat evidently devoured a swallow tail
yesterday, because the "tell tale tail" feathers were all over my front
lawn. My guess is, this bird succumbed to natural causes, as I can't see my
22 pound puddy cat actually predating this bird! But the mental image of
her "stalking" an "avian dinosaur" did give me a pause! :-)
2) Our local zoo, EVER THE PROMOTERS, have been advertising their two
Kommodo Dragons (sp?) as "dinosaur survivors". I'm just anal retentive
enough for this to rub me slightly wrong.

I really better not speak to whether that's dogma or not. All I
that when I yell "Look! A dinosaur" and point at a pigeon, nobody
