Re: bauplan convergence
Many of the animals that live in
trees today, or at least have some history of climbing trees, have fur,
which could be adapted over the course of time, to become something like
Are you serious?? You must know about the 'fuzzy' theropods like
Sinornithisaurus, Bepaisoaurus, Sinosauropteryx which show a cobvering of
hair-like structures. Feathers evolved from this- true feathers I mean like
you see in Caudipteryx and birds.
(Interestingly enough, the only flying mammal, the bat,
flaps and not modified hair).
You compare apples & oranges !!!
So far, however, this hasn't happened.
the evolution of hair into feathers to be much easier than the evolution of
scales into feathers.
See above - there are small 'fuzzy' theropods
So, if we have a population of small therapod
dinosaurs living in the trees, fulfilling the role of, say, lemurs, why did
the dinosaurs start to fly, and why haven't lemurs taken wing?
Who cares??? Did you read my last messsage>? It is not compulsary for
ALL lineages to copy each other!@!!Why did creodonts return to the sea and
evolve into whales, but why not dogs? They are both terestriall carnivores?
That logic you use is nonsense!!!
