Quite so: for a movie about the K/T boundary, it's funny that not a single
taxon shown is from the latest Maastrichtian!! (Maybe there are forms that
are in the show that aren't on the web page yet.)
And, yes, I know, "It's just a movie". Still, if the major characters in a
cartoon about the animals of Africa featured as the main cast a panda, a
kangaroo, a wooly mammoth, and a penguin, I think that the response "It's
just a movie" would seem pretty lame...
In any case, it should be nice eye candy, if nothing else.
