Pakasuchus dentition - second try
I asked this question about 10 days ago, but it probably was not
noticed because you were all busy arguing US politics...
So I try again, hopefully with more luck:
looking at the nature paper on Pakasuchus, I could not find an answer
to this very simple question (may have overlooked it), so I ask you experts:
If occlusion in Pakasuchus and relatives was mammal-like, were teeths
replaced in mammal-like fashion also or were they replaced more
frequently? If the latter, how was occlusion ensured with re-growing
teeth? Ot were there gaps at some places in the dentition?
