Re: Allo(ween)saurus (still joking)
Quoting Alain Bénéteau <firstname.lastname@example.org>:
Because there was no pumpkin during mesozoic... right?
Right. Pumpkins (being squashes) are relatively derived flowering
plants and hence would certainly not have been around during the
Jurassic. I don't know whether there are any records of Cucurbitaceae
from the Cretaceous.
