You want a question on prosauropods I'll  give you one.
Has it been proven that some species of prosauropod ate meat on occasion or
that they only ate plants?
Also I would like to know if Quetzalcoatlus sp is ever going to be named!
Last I heard they were still debating over whether or not it was a juvenile
of Q.northropi or a seperate species.  And finaly with all the changes in
Pterosaur science over the years is the book "The Illustrated Encyclopedia
of Pterosaurs "(of which I have a copy) still a good and accurate reference
in terms of classification, life appearence and behavior?

Thank you and please excuse the non Dinosaur questions.
