Re: Killer Pterosaurs?

<<Just thinking about the highly toxic environments of certain bat-infested
caves.  The floors are covered with guano and a wide variety of decaying
matter--a really hostile environment. (See David Attenborough's "The Life Of
Mammals") I wonder if there might be some similar environment created by
Pterosaurs in which to breed a certain kind of disease--something having to
do with waste build-up in an area?>>

I'd have thought comparing pterosaurs with birds rather than bats would be
more appropriate, Neal.  Besides, David Attenborough seemed to enjoy himself
in that cave and looked healthy enough.
