As I started to write this, a rather ridiculously meaty creature (Meleagris gallopavo to be precise) had been stuffed and was being slowly roasted. Eventually, it was consumed by a family of apes of genus Homo. Stripped of flesh, the skeletal remains of this creature marked it as a maniraptoran coelurosaur of clade Aves – the sole line of Dinosauria to persist after the Cretaceous-Palaeogene extinction event. Literally, every example of this line is more closely related to the mighty Tyrannosaurus rex than Triceratops, Diplodocus, or Stegosaurus were to either.
