Marsupials suffered only local extinctions--and those have been
(reasonably, in my view) attributed to placvental invasions. Crocs
live. Chelonians, snakeypoos, and lizards, multis...Currie writes paper
called (something like) _What Extinctions?_
-by-most, live. Monotremes. It seems to me that the bolide people have it
right, among terrestrial vertebrates the extinction primarily involved
large creatures but not crocs. Do you have new information on
this? Otherwise, why would I not be serious?
