Yep. And plesiosaurs and ichthyosaurs, though descended from cold-blooded ancestors, somehow evolved to be homeothermic and had body temperatures much greater than that of the water around them.

Ah, don't you just love what isotope studies can turn out?

Oh, gosh..I want to say the spinosaurs, but I thought that was all just speculation without reason. My second guess is the ceratopsians...they were just discovered in Europe.

Hmmmm, the ceratopsians are more convincing to me. I'll go with them.

I can't guess...I saw the answer somewhere. The more I think about it, the more it makes sense.

I thought spinosaurs were the obvious ones. Then schnautzr said it was speculation, so I thought it was speculation.

Well, no one said that the obvious one is always never the answer. : P
Actually when I asked Schnautzr to make his choice, I was tempted to hint that it was the spinosaurs, but figured someone would get it.... eventually. : P
