Re: A "new" theory on Oviraptor philoceratops (I think)

  Though while I have observed both pandas (covered in a previous post)
and hummingbirds eat other things than their general inferred diets,
including insects for both (both in footage and the hummingbirds in person
taking on rather tasty insects), I have no knowledge of the sea snake and
am fairly certain the koala takes meat as well, but am willing to be
wrong. A nice compiling list would be cool at this point, because it would
go to disrupting my hypothesis of dietary singularity.

  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.
