  Rather than short teeth, this jaw may be lacking teeth, with interdental
plates apparent. If anything, the spacing and size of the apparent tooth
sockets indicates reference to Solnhofen *Ctenochasma*.

  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.
