Those two Dockum 'pterosauromorphs' are basal crocs, based on the

Hmm... I have evidence of my own to contradict this. Read it and weep...
I looked at one of these specimens using PhotoShop (version 7.0.1) - and I
saw the rest of the body! The specimen has a pair of wings, and it wore
aviator goggles and a helmet. (The helmet is red and even shows a little
yellow lightning-bolt symbol, which you can only see under high resolution.)
In my opinion, this is pretty compelling evidence that the animal could
fly. I'm going to publish my study in _Playboy_, another magazine where
color doesn't cost extra. (I only read it for the articles.)
