Re: history of the warm-blooded debate........

A small point here.  While E. D. Cope did not posit that dinosaurs were
endothermic, he did see to it that the depiction of his first discovery,
"Laelaps," now _Dryptosaurus_ was a rather lively hunter poucing upon a
prey/potential rival individual also a Dryptosaur. 
That somewhat anticipated the concepts discussed by Desmond and later by
Bakker, both of whom if I recall correctly discussed Cope.  Seems E.D. was
at least one foot on the right trackway there, that is if you agree with
the endothermic theory.
