Re: Mammals preying on giant azhdarchid pterosaurs!



Not to mention the non-involvement of mammals in the destruction
of ammonoids, many bivalve/gastropod mollusks (especially the reef
building rudistids), most foraminifera and calcareous nannoplankton
groups and many broad-leaved evergreen angiosperm groups (gnawed away
by mammals?) - all of which just happened to buy the farm at about
the same time as the dinosaurs.
