The Skate-ing continues


Having little formal knowledge of what creature developed when in Earth’s history, (other than being able to trace on record my own arrival) I was wondering about that odd-looking skate. When did they start, who else was around then?

Surprise surprise! Dinosaurs.

 

Early Marsupials and mammals. Herbivores not too far different from those we know today, and so on. Quite an explosive time for changing things.

 

So I’ve added a few pics, just to put Mr Skate into a temporal neighbourhood context.

They had to find a way to minimalize themselves.
