Re: attack on dinosaur--horrific video



A search on "glirodont" brings up some excellent images here 
<www.biology.utah.edu/dearing/teaching/Biol%205370/Handouts/October%2016%20handouts%5B1%5D.ppt>,
 and they clearly show you are quite right. It is indeed the same argument, as 
those multi's show some quite chiselly incisors. Nothing special about rodents, 
or timing, so scratch one cartoon. Sniff.

Some of them, yes. AFAIK this applies to all Cretaceous
 multituberculates, 
which AFAIK is why they are called "glirodont".
