Scientific assessment of the origins of coronaviruses


The Chatting Zone
Infinity Blade: Can't say much on other non-marsupial metatherians, though. Oct 3, 2023 7:23:51 GMT 5
Infinity Blade: cartilage instead (as in some true marsupials like the thylacine). If so, I have no idea what reason any of these creatures would have to possess cartilaginous pouch support instead of bony ones. Oct 3, 2023 7:22:18 GMT 5
Infinity Blade: Sparassodonts were sister to true marsupials (these were the South American predatory "marsupials" you hear about), but apparently had highly reduced epipubic bones (which support the pouch). Either they lacked pouches or their epipubic bones were made of- Oct 3, 2023 7:21:38 GMT 5
Infinity Blade: The only continent where it's really said that placentals outcompeted metatherians is South America. Not only is that just one continent, but it later turned out a lot of South American native mammals died out before their placental counterparts appeared. Oct 3, 2023 7:16:25 GMT 5
Exalt: Because it seems like Marsupials are heavily concentrated in Australia. Oct 3, 2023 7:15:12 GMT 5
Exalt: Did I just use the wrong term with outcompeted? Oct 3, 2023 7:14:36 GMT 5
Exalt: Also, you reminded me: is there anything on what the non-marsupial metatherians were like? Oct 3, 2023 7:14:03 GMT 5
Exalt: Can you elaborate? Oct 3, 2023 7:13:46 GMT 5
Infinity Blade: Honestly, I think it's debatable to what extent placentals even outcompeted marsupials (or should I say, eutherians outcompeted metatherians) in the first place. Oct 3, 2023 7:09:42 GMT 5
Exalt: Are there any good resources on why placental mammals outcompeted marsupials in most of the world, with the reverse happening in Australia? Oct 3, 2023 5:21:59 GMT 5
dinosauria101: What concerns me is that not only do I like the documentary much less than you, but it's not even my personal weakest episode. That does not reflect well on PP at all. Oct 3, 2023 2:48:26 GMT 5
Infinity Blade: I couldn't say much when I reviewed it either. Not really saying much (given how much I love the doc as a whole), but it wasn't my favorite episode. Oct 3, 2023 2:14:39 GMT 5
dinosauria101: Reviewing PP Oceans right now. I am amazed at how little I have to say. Oct 3, 2023 2:13:04 GMT 5
Infinity Blade: Don't got a counter to it being a chimera. Oct 2, 2023 18:40:10 GMT 5
Exalt: Any thoughts on the Dakotaraptor thing? Oct 2, 2023 8:50:40 GMT 5
dinosauria101: If it's not in LOOP, someone somewhere had better be hard at work making a Yutyrannus palaeodocumentary. Or else feathers will fly (see what I did there?) Oct 2, 2023 5:03:26 GMT 5
dinosauria101: It won't be as long or as important as said verdict, but given the differences (intended or not), time between them, and change of my PP opinion between them (as you have seen on Discord), it seems only fair to compare them pre-verdict. Sept 30, 2023 18:05:32 GMT 5
dinosauria101: Yes. Prior to the final verdict, when all episodes are reviewed, I will make a comment comparing and contrasting them. Sept 30, 2023 18:04:08 GMT 5
Infinity Blade: So you're gonna compare the two seasons dinosauria101? Sept 30, 2023 2:32:51 GMT 5
Exalt: ah Sept 30, 2023 2:23:52 GMT 5
