more henpecking on 2008-beta WWD
So was there a particular reason why 'polar allosaur' was dropped in favor of a
more general 'carnosaur' in this version? Did they decide that it was more
bipolar than polar?
And why was Deinosuchus referred to as an alligator rather than a crocodilian?
Just American bias? Or is the snout more alli than croc in current circles?
One of the most jarring changes is the dropping [or at least de-emphasizing] of
the meteor hit
off Yucatan - was this a time constraint or is the K-T boundary no longer
thought to be the finish line?
