Re: _Odontochelys semitestacea_ comes out of its shell



You palaeontologists are as bad as us archaeologists - just *one* isolated find and suddenly entire
sweeping sagas are based on it.

Only when it comes to turtles and lissamphibians.

(And ichthyosaurs and thalattosaurs and champsosaurs and... chroniosuchians perhaps... and multituberculates... and alvarezsaurs... and...)

For everything else, we have a fairly solid fossil record that doesn't topple that easily.
