     I have to say that that is one of the best things I have heard all 
day. Getting a  paleontologist who looks and studies gut traces ( Derik 
Briggs, Conway Morris, Henry Whittington, one of those people who 
studies the Burgess shale and similiar places and similiar animals) 
would be great for this Sinosauropteryx lung mess.
