Just a quick comment on the Skybax example. When the instructor was talking 
about the two species diverging, he was talking about the _Quetzalcoatlus_ 
and the _Pteranodon_, not the tyrannosaurs. Hence why the two share separate 
tiers of the canyon.

As for the rest, I missed the "_Alamosaurus_" statement and that those things 
on the bridge were called mosasaurs is just sad. Here I was thinking it was 
just a terribly put together crocodylotarsian chimaera.

Oh yes and what is a "kas-mee-oh-sore?" I mean other than the first 
hadrosaurian to show marked ceratopian convergences >:)
