Re: Frog Urostyles on the Dino List??? [Humor]

  Thanks for the reference for Jenkins and Shubin,
1998, Matt; I have this on my references-to-get list,
but it has been taking second banana to all the other
references in accord with my studies.

  Leaping sauropods, Batman! How else do you think
they were able to get away from packs of marauding
allosaurs, huh?


  "Huh? Where'd lunch go, Frances?"

  "Now, would you look at THAT..."


  Millions of years later, the Cleveland-Lloyd Quarry
was discovered and a recent paper would finally hit
upon the idea that the bunch of allosaur skeletons
were the remains of a hunting pack and that the mud
was forms from the dessicated remains of the result of
a leaping sauropod -- bits of which were found all
over the quarry itself. Some allosaurs would even be
discovered with bits of bone shrapnel imbedded within
their ribcages and skulls....

  Dinosaurs are horrible, terrible creatures! Even the
  fluffy ones, the snuggle-up-at-night-with ones. You think
  they're fun and sweet, but watch out for that stray tail
  spike! Down, gaston, down, boy! No, not on top of Momma!
