Re: Well its not dinosaurian, but nevertheless ..............
The late alpinist and mountain/nature photographer Galen Rowell once
wrote about an encounter he had with mountain goats. He was part of a
team trying to climb a big mountain, I believe in Alaska or the Canadian
Rockies, and high on the mountain they were faced with a very steep rock
face that they could not negotiate. After a number of failed attempts
they sat and contemplated the situation. While sitting on the ledge
Rowell remarked that a mountain goat came up and with little effort
nimbly hopped and jumped up and across the cliff face that had stymied them.
And all without an opposable thumb.....

This is of such astounding neontological curiosity, that I pass it
members of this list would, I hope, find it of some interest.
Animals will go to astounding lengths (or heights!) to address
mineral deficiancies. In Mt Elgon
National Park in Kenya there are elephants that have been mining salt
from caves quite possibly
for thousands of years.
