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%20h
andouts%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.>>

One thing multis didn't get around to with their incisors was
open-rootedness.  That sort of thing allows rodent incisors to be
ever-growing.  At least, ever-growing for as long as the owner is able to
maintain activity.  It's possible that difference turned out to matter.
