Re: Caudipteryx



>>it's a bird,  You question should be "is it Aves or what"?

-Betty<<
That wasn't my question.  I know that it's a bird, and it can't be aves since
(by your definition) every bird that survived the K/T is aves and Caudipteryx
didn't.  I would like to know the genera _placement_ within birds.  So far,
my favorite interpretation is "primitive oviraptor"; dare there any problems
with that hypothesis?
