What does everyone think of Megatherium vs Acrocanthosaurus or Megatherium vs Mapusaurus for tomorrow? I know the dinos are bigger but I think they'll need the size advantage because their weaponry is not the best for dealing with chain mail armor

How many scalloped hammerhead sharks would be necessary to be a match for a great white shark? On a related note, is that matchup even sensible? I've been thinking about this match since I was a little boy, but it is very similar to mako vs great hammerhead and thus perhaps redundant.

I think 8 would make a good matchup; despite them being about half the weight of the GWS, I think the numbers can make up for that. And I think it's distinct since it has a number of smaller sharks vs a bigger shark, both of different species to the other matchup, as opposed to 1 on 1.

Depending on the population, the hyena might have quite a weight advantage, but I'd say they overlap enough for it to be fair.
As for the hammerheads vs great white, I've just checked the profiles again and remembered that scalloped hammerheads are much tinier than I remember. Add in the fact that only juveniles live in large schools and I'd need several hundreds for it to be even remotely fair. Maybe something smaller than a great white shark would be in order.
Infinity Blade: I'm not sure. Freshwater plants certainly grow from the underwater sediment upwards, but I don't know if they support the same kinds of diverse ecosystems seagrass meadows do.

Ceratodromeus: Considering even the most terrestrially inclined extant crocodilians are also very good swimmers, i see zero reason for sebechids to not be.

Infinity Blade: Virtually every terrestrial animal can swim if it needs to. I don't know about tail flexibility, though.

jhg: Probably not. Terrestrial crocodiles stayed on land for a good reason.

Supercommunist: Do you think sebecids and other crocodile-like terrestrial animals were good swimmers and if so, would they have used their tails to swim or would they have been too stiff?

Supercommunist: Any idea how well pterosaurs would have fared in extremely cold climates? I can't help but assume that their wing membranes would be more vunerable to frostbite than a bird's wing.

Supercommunist: Turns out there is a study: www.nature.com/articles/s41598-017-08812-2 fresh bones provided 63% more energy than dry bones but what I find intresting is that dry bones that are between 3-12 months old is still a viable food source for them.

Infinity Blade: I think they might get calcium from the bones, but those might be harder to digest as well. For bone marrow, I'd say however long it's around before it completely decays.

Supercommunist: Question: I know a bearded vulture's diet consists mainly of bone marrow, but are they able to derive nutritional value from old bones or do the bones have to be relatively fresh?
