Re: Why did small dinos become extinct?
I have wondered why tehre was not a mass exctinction to go with the really
hot period at the Paleocene-Eocene boundary. What went extinct then?
Also, were there not fairly good sized carnivorous feathered dinos, aka
toothed predator birds, running around atleast until then?

The forams behaved exactly as expected of them: the planktonic ones mostly
died out, as did most of the rest of the plankton, and the benthic
(sea-floor) ones took no notice (...only to suffer a major mass extinction
10 million years later, at the Palaeocene-Eocene boundary, when the whole
world became really hot, deep sea included).they did.
