  Indeed, *Immensosciurus gigantissimus* was a beaut, with a skull evenly
.9 meters in length and a tail that could shade 5.85 square meters. Whole
deer limbs have been found in the cadaverized torsos of these monsters,
and many an Australian croc enthusiast has lost his head in thinking the
jaws would be fun to put it into.

  Little steps are often the hardest to take.  We are too used to making leaps 
in the face of adversity, that a simple skip is so hard to do.  We should all 
learn to walk soft, walk small, see the world around us rather than zoom by it.
