Re: Extinction due to "blue balls"
Quoting from this article:
<<But crocodiles and turtles had already evolved at the time of the great
extinction 65 million years ago. How did they survive?
"These animals live at the intersection of aquatic and terrestrial
in estuarine waters and river beds, which might have afforded some protection
against the more extreme effects of environmental change, hence giving them
time to adapt," the researchers wrote.>>
Well, aparently, all lizards and snakes were also at the intersection of
aquatic and terrestrial environments.... As were ammonites.
