Re: Dino symbiosis?



Bill Stout's book came out in the late 1970's (around 1977-1980). There is a
much older painting that I've seen, that shows a tyrannosaurid with both
birds and pterosaurs cleaning its teeth.  (I believe the book that I have it
in came out in the mid-1960's, I'm not sure of who did the painting,
although it was reminiscient of Rudoplh Zallinger).  I believe that someone
else has painted a large sauropod with pterosaurs and/or birds perched on
its back, I know that Paul Sorton has a sculpture of a diplidocid with
pterosaur.
