>> you think raptors aren't predatory dinosaurs?<< Whoops, you said "aren't", I misread, sorry. You can ignore my other, ritously indignant message. Yes, raptors are predatory dinosaurs, but I had a brain lapse and I couldn't think of the right name for the dinosaurs that evolved into birds. I called them "predatory dinosaurs" for lack of a better term. Anyway. . .
