  Is this speculation based on something more than the simple fact that the
omnivores had to be somewhere in the chain or is there some fossil data that
led them to that speculation?  If so, what (briefly) might that be and where
can I go for more information?  Also, while prosauropods may handle the
sauropod lineage, what about the ornithischians?  Any of them listed as
likely candidates for omnivory?
