i agree with that comment! kind of explains why mammals weren't very big
during the dino era! imagine a six-foot predator with an african grey
brain! we would be SO dead!
also, now i am not a professional at all, so this may be a "duh", but
aren't the discoverers pretty experienced people? i know that, being a
total linux computer geek, i know a lot of stuff just from experience,
etc., but many people don't get it or don't think i really know that much
and am wrong. most people can't tell the difference between a pebble and
a fossil, but the people who do REALLY do, correct? or am i just giving
paleontologists more credit than they deserve? ;)
this is in no way meant to start any sort of flame war or anything like
that. i really don't know the answer to this.
