Re: "X" marks the spot
Birds evolve from pterrosaurs? Are you joking????
There is no evidence at all for this so your search for a 'misisng link'
would probablty be a waste of time.
Just a random thought....(I often have them when I wake up in the early
morning hours)....has anyone tried to intentionally seek out specific
formations that may hold the treasures like those that have been unearthed
in Laoning China recently??? I mean, now that a farmer just happened to
come across that first feathered fossil, they are actively mining the area
for more. But, has anyone tried to figure where there may have been the
proper conditions for such a bounty of fossils to exist? (ie....lakebed
near active volcano). I`d be particularly interested in Triassic deposits
myself. My idea of early pterosaurs evolving into birds would involve the
first development of feathers in a cold enviorn. Perhaps the missing link
would be found in what was then a southern polar region. Perhaps evidence
exists at the continental edge where Australia has rifted off from
Antarctica, or perhaps Southern South America? There must have been some
volcanic activity in these areas,....and some ancient lakes???
